Read Poem: and do they weep, by Patti Cole

Polaris
and the Southern Cross
and Venus in the western sky
who call the star
who leads our way
along the path
and do they weep
oh should they weep

and do they weep
our lapse to see
the careless sham
our travesty
the world on fire
the price of lies
and do they fear
oh should they fear

and do they fear
the end of rhyme
for such as we
who’ve squandered time
who’ve wasted green
and left disgrace
and do they chide
oh should they chide

Bridge:
cityscapes
that choke on life
neon gases
the new darkness

Polaris
and the Southern Cross
and Venus in the western sky
who call the star
who cries alone
his laughing owl
and do they weep
and do they weep
