Synergy is the key
to poetry

 

THE SUM OF GIVING =GETTING

One little sparrow
pecking at crumbs
sum…mons others.

Two little sparrows
pecking at crumbs
faxing the message
“lunch on the run”.

Four little sparrows
attract bigger birds
whose monopoly subtracts
the sharing of food.

Size can multiply power
and power can add to greed.
Freely share what’s given
and harvest from this creed
a sermon
that will sum…mon
others to the feast.
