Ode To Ben*

The wisdom of a wise man can
resolve the poets’ plight.
Ignite their curiosity.
Make long-dim minds glow bright.

The wisdom of a wise man can
loose captive words to flight.
Invite still prose to play once more.
Coax idle fish to bite.

The wisdom of a wise man can
illuminate the night.
Fight back the darkness from the sky.
Bring dreams back into sight.

The wisdom of a wise man can
set all that’s wrong aright.
Delight weary and tortured hearts.
Lift burdened depths to height.

The wisdom of a wise man can
restore the pen to might.
Spite the demons in every soul.
Laugh in the face of fright.

As surely as Ben Huberman,
the wise man can recite
quite anything you’d need to know
to hit the keys and write!

  1. That’s a pretty cool idea, and you carried it out with great execution as well. I really like the repetitive lines, they really sucked you in.

  2. I love your humor and just the fact that you did this! It is also really good, and so captures what I feel about joining this group, being led by the “wise man,” and finding the courage to write with each assignment.. Btw, your pickle-person is hilarious and makes me smile every time I open your page!–Suzanne
