We Refugees
by Benjamin Zephaniah

I come from a musical place
Where they shoot me for my song
And my brother has been tortured
By my brother in my land.

I come from a beautiful place
Where they hate my shade of skin
They don't like the way I pray
And they ban free poetry.

The Duel
by Eugene Field

The gingham dog and the calico cat
Side by side on the table sat;
'T was half-past twelve, and (what do you think!)
Nor one nor t' other had slept a wink!
The old Dutch clock and the Chinese plate
Appeared to know as sure as fate
There was going to be a terrible spat.
(I wasn't there; I simply state
What was told to me by the Chinese plate!)

Love is Blind
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I was a marvelous ophthalmologist, impacting how others saw this world,
As tomorrow one day sees yesterday, on lanes where hued leaves swirled.

I corrected hazy, crazy vision problems, with eyeglasses and with surgery;
Like a second look, evoked by raspberry rose, to verify beauty's certainty.

I also did frequent research, on hidden causes and cures for eye disease;
Just as reasons for rainbows and stardust, lay hidden in nature mysteries.

I had once studied cosmetology, and I loved the art of applying makeup;

Broken
by Aras Acolipeps

They brought me into
a broken world.
They told me to make
a better place.
But before I became
an adult,
they blamed me
for their broken world.
And they blamed me
for being broken.

I Feel Lonely
by Sorry But no

I feel lonely.
I must succeed.
Can I call my parents?
No, they have too much on their plates.
Can I call my teachers?
No, We only discuss school work.
Can I call my friends?
No, they are always too busy, and never pick up the phone.
Can I call That Friend?
… No, I cannot have her worry about me.

Chocolate Ice Cream
by lily Vilchis

A angry old man wrote a lullaby.
He sang the song
to his grand daughter.
His rusty, gone voice stumbling
out a tune about chocolate
ice cream and puppies.
She knew no difference in love
for chocolate ice cream and
the old wrinkled lips
serenading her.

LUCACI FLORENTIN - SERENDIPITY - ȚARA MEA NOUĂ - MY NEW COUNTRY RO
by Lucaci Florentin

LUCACI FLORENTIN - SERENDIPITY - ȚARA MEA NOUĂ - MY NEW COUNTRY

Va pup dragii mei fani , mult ați mai așteptat
Acest poem nou, frumos , din sufletul curat
Și iată din senin și curcubee vă fac din nou șah mat
Am toate formele legale și la OSIM eu l-am înregistrat
Să nu vină vreo impostoare tupeistă să zică că i l-am furat
Bazată pe eșecul statului de drept cum ni s-a precizat
Pe prostia, lenea și incompetența unui sistem ratat
Ce perpetuează racilele comuniste, securiste de rahat

When We Were Four
by Jacob George

Dinner each day
The time slowly passes
Four round plates
Two pairs of glasses
Together each day
Never unfurled
Sharing what we had to say
About the world

When summers heat
