Enemy Poem by Langston Hughes


It would be nice
In any case,
To someday meet you
Face to face
Walking down
The road to hell...
As I come up
Feeling swell.

    A poet is an ambassador of human unity. As such, he talks about the hell as the final resting place of enemies with inflated egos and misguided strength. Great poem. (Report) Reply
