Struggle Song (A Duet): The Sunday Whirl – Wordle

The struggle is eternal. Father and son. Brother against brother. Age enlisting youth. Idealism pulling at pessimism. Hope fighting off despair.

Each week The Sunday Whirl invites writers to write a poem or short prose using some or all of the “wordle’s” 12 words. This week it is:

Struggle Song (A Duet)

Listen, buddy,
if you can’t serve,
get out the way.

      I ain’t your bud,
      and I don’t care.
      Whatever! I say.

Time you grew up.
There’s a community

      Ain’t got the time. And, hell,
      it’s decades this community’s

Your personal concerns
don’t matter.
It’s time.

      Cut the chat. My
      life is my matter.
      My dime.

      Not with the state.
      Not with those guys.
How do I reach you?
      Can’t contact me, boo.
I refuse to let go.
      Just let go, bro.
Let go?
      Let go…
      Let’s go.

      • Naw … seemed obvkous that the voices were indeed two. Though I suppose that the other could have been true. All good orators and debaters know you have to look at both sides of an argument. However I understood how you were trying to give a new perspective which is universally ignored for “so many good reasons” . Georgia.

Have some fun...
