Who To Admire


Today we are told who to love
who to admire
they always tell us who the good poeple are
and that we should love them
follow them
and look upto them.

We dont have a choice in the matter
we are not alowed to choose who we want to love
who ever is in fashion
who ever is making money
love them
admire them
pick them as your hero.

All about the takings
never about the talent
all about the pretty face
never about the ability
whos the flavour of the month
whos the in all the papers
this person is a good person
this person should inspire you.

No choice
told what to do
who to love
who to admire
who to put all hope into
this is your hero.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
