Day 19 “Write a poem in the form of a personal ad! Or, if you like, try any kind of want ad. Personal ads, though, do have a kind of poetry to them.”
A brother who won’t lead
his little brother astray
Into the path of destruction
Even if he has to die alone.
A father who teaches his sons to obey
Not the tenets of violent rebellion
But the laws of love thy neighbor
The second would have been the key
To make the first unnecessary.
