PREACHING TO THE CONVERTED    

    Let me tell you what you want to hear:
    War is bad,
    Politicians are liars,
    Nobody cares about global warming.    

    Etc.

    Yes, you can clap now.
    You can even rise to your feet
    And cheer.    

    What you donít want news of
    Is this:
    How we daily,
    Compulsively
    Sin one against another.    

    The human heart
    Is corrupt
    Even in its most private recesses.    

    In other words,
    Sorry:
    What you donít want to hear
    Is this poem.
