The Pain Behind a Grain


A cut, an abrasion,
a wound, an infection;
sure sources of pain, but
a hurt that goes away-
mere temporal discomforts.

Alas, they're not all the same
The pain behind the grain
appears like it's here to stay.


Can it go away?
Not if public apathy stays.
Those pangs of hunger,
bleeding ulcers create.
Those horrifying statistics
do humanity decimate.

Click the link to clear your conscience.
Perhaps word power may make the difference.

This was testing, but fun. It was a crash course in English from Shakespeare onwards. More should have a go: it becomes compulsive, but it's for a good cause.

Hey thanks for the link. I played for a few mins for 250 grains.
I am going to forward it to my friends.

i had stopped by your blog a few times. I noticed 'cumberland county library'. Is that the one around Camp Hill, PA ?

Hope you are okay--probably, like me, you are just rushed off your feet. Be well.
