My Feelings at Morning Report Time on April 26, 2019

by Don Baham

At this very moment

I am sad that

my disclosing

the recent melancholy

in my poetry

might diminish

your approval of this poem


For sometime now

I find that only

my music and singing

provide occasional reason

for feelings other

than unhappiness


If only I had not

recently learned about

Extinction Rebellion

and its reason for

coming into being

I would have not

considered more than

Extinction Rebellion


Rebellion

has been a hallmark of my

reason for existence

and Extinction

defies rational consideration


So perhaps you can now

appreciate my occasional

spontaneous song
