Richard Schnap- A Poem


I watch the news
That seems to come
From another planet

Where the price of love
Is determined by its value
On an ever changing market

So that a heart’s investment
Can yield a fortune
Or an irredeemable loss

Leaving us to mourn
What could have been
And may never come again

While I silence the screen
To look down at the street
For a better wisdom

And see a man
Waiting for a bus
In the pouring rain
