Life Without Poetry

By Andrew R. Duckworth

Generations once revered it,
But, over time,
It went into steep decline,
In favor of the more literal.
Assembling life’s great puzzles
Was a waste of time
When the short cuts and codes
Were at our fingertips.
And now, we face the problem
Of feeling the figurative
Is a lie, a fickle fiction.
But the truth will remain

The figurative tells more
Than the literal ever can.
