The milk is low, the eggs are few!

The bread’s gone up, the coffee too.

The rent is up, the cable’s due!

The money is tight, we're still not through.


In the news, a lot got shot!

Putin is mad, war breaks out.

Father’s cry, moms are sad!

Siblings cry, for what they had.

The sound of this fine poem

The sound of this fine poem aspires toward music . . . it almost as its own melody playing as one reads through the lines.

Enjoy effulgent days, and exquisite nights,

unto the exultations of Heaven.
