There hasn’t been a single newsworthy event today
Except that perhaps…
No, who would care about that?
Or maybe the little…
Nope, it’s highly unlikely anyone would read
About the great …..
Of course not, that would not turn a head.
But tomorrow the headlines promise
Not much different
Because no one reports on
Beautiful things
Like the little boy who left
All his money on the porch of the poor man
And the mother who took another job
So her daughter could go to college
And the veteran who loved his country
More than himself—and didn’t die,
But suffered
And the magnificent melody
Of the chickadee chickadee-ing about the yard
On this fully fall day of rain.
