Bards and Poets

Poor, they may have seemed,
overcome with the task of bringing
even-handed news.
The bards of old, the pipers,
reeling from victory or defeat,
yet wrote the lines without fear of rebuke.

 

Another in this week’s study in Acrostic poetry. I wrote it as a rebuke to the censorship I experienced on a poetry page. They didn’t notice.
