Themed Poetry: Questions

-Vanessa Kiefer (’20)

 

“Questions”

 

Progress

Is it not inevitable?

We wear black, purple

Measures that are charitable

 

We say that’s enough

Throw a bone to the cause

But the river still churns

And there’s no true applause

 

People will ride their bikes

Watch their movies

 

Meet friends for lunch

Comment on other beauties

 

Because we’ve done the limit

And who wants to worry?

The whole world is ahead

Why make the future blurry?

 

But, there is more

An exception to our ongoing rules

 

The birds have flown too far

And those are rising against ghouls

 

Bravery, and intolerance

For a continuation of oppression

May still blur the world’s rules

But, it is always better to question.
