A Hammer Is A Hammer


A hammer is a hammer as I've been told
From the day manufactured, or the day bought or sold
And it will be remembered as such a tool
Even if destroyed, or examined by every molecule
It does or did exactly what a hammer entails
Staking an object or installing or removing nails
And if the handle is broken and never repaired
It still is a hammer even though weak and impaired
If we were to look about us to see what we see
We would see the shape of objects that were meant to be
A Hammer is a hammer that is profound and true
And a man is a man as I am me and you are you.

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
