This poem was inspired by a word bank posted by Kat Apf. The words were: rhapsody, well, tennis.

They want you to decide

between left and right:

You're too liberal! You're too tight!

You're not straight! You're too narrow!

Their voices cry out

in a never-ending rhapsody

of ill-harmonies.

Again and again

they lower their buckets

into the poisoned well

hauling up more insults

to be hurled back and forth

over the thorny net

on the tennis court of life.

… While the clay is cracking

underneath us all.
