To See What Worms

To See What Worms


Poetry

Tired

I am so tired of waiting,
Aren't you,
For the world to become good
And beautiful and kind?
Let us take a knife
And cut the world in two—
And see what worms are eating
At the rind.

Langston Hughes*

 

*Thanks to Amy Sawyer, a poet/mother in Washington, DC, for introducing me to this poem.
