Glum To Chew
for L.M.M.

depressing, distressing,
just plain uninspiring

in spite of this and so many other poems
negativity inspires

Wilfred Owen’s and Siegfried Sassoon’s
poems of war or John Keats’s poems
inspired by illness

but artists always try
to brighten up a dark room
lighten a dark world
