Sonnet: After the Fall

*****

Sometimes, it is difficult not to see
Th’entire planet dipped in tragedy —
Each spirit scrambling after petty pow’r
May be held but for one frenetic hour

Willing both love and logic sacrifice
Without stopping to think about it twice —
‘Tis simply true that if I do you in
I to myself the same wise do begin

For sure, directly after your own fall
Will come my own, then many, most, then all!
Yes — we have fallen, every one of us
From one another’s trust deserving of

Now, as we, one by one, our feet regain
Humanity will get back up again

Among us, poets are not paid. The poet/editor of this website, being physically disabled, lives at a fraction of her nation’s poverty level. Become a patron of the fine arts at: https://www.gofundme.com/are-you-a-patron-of-the-arts
