heavy lifting

some poems are sweet vanilla
some are spiced nice
some are serious, some silly
some have unexpected might
do you wonder if you can save the day
write a poem then and have your say
see what might happen when your voice
is added to mine, words have power
they shift and sift and grind
they point and clear and find a way
lyric, ballad, sonnet or ode
poetry is potent, so please have your say
together, your words and mine,
might help save the day
