first barrage: the charge of the 77

first barrage
of the charge of the 77
nibbling frantically away
at the never-ending pile
but hark!
some child-poet’s soul beckons me to minute distraction
and I am taken back
to my raw youth,
seething in mock rage at my supposed privations
of my past
gratified yet burdened by this awesome sense
of responsibility
then i toll on and
return
to
work.
