The Merry Folk

Note: This may put a damper on your night. It’s after a rough Sociology chapter. This is one of my first attempts at a poem. There’s a book of poems coming, and I hope to learn from it. It was enjoyable to write.

Playing

Play, Play, Play
It’s what the merry folk say
It’s good to listen to what they say
What the merry folk say

Made for a dark night
reading, those readings
Readings plagued with fright
to be with those readings
always, always a dark night

It put a damper,
damper on the night

Learned about Hussein
it went against the grain
if a joke you’d had sung
he’d cut out your tongue

Another’s first born son
Never learned to run
Rather, became an explosive

Play, Play, Play
It’s what the merry folk say
It’s good to listen to what they say
What the merry folk say

What the merry folk say
It’s what the merry folk say
Listen, they say
Play,
Play,
Play!
