Poisoning The Well

We turn a deaf ear

as they live with the pain

of those who we cancel

with biting disdain


Unable to rise

above selfish intent

with opioid bias

our progeny bent



colors the flow

young ears once thought distant

to reap what we sow


The world as we leave it

our tracks in the sand

forever to haunt us

—as children disband


(Radnor Pennsylvania: December, 2021)
