poetic recital

I tell it to the old
I tell it to the young
I tell it to mould
hearts we all long

I tell it to white
I tell it to black
I tell it to ignite
feelings to spark

I tell it to men
I tell it to women
Itell it to the core
to invoke their feelings to the fore

I tell it to the poor
I tell it to the rich
Itell it on the floor
with words carved to bewitch

I tell it long
I tell it short
I tell it to prolong
issues in wisdom pot

I tell it to the elite
I tell it to the ordinary
I tell it to emphasize social wrongs
to correct and not to prolong

I tell all these in poetry with ease
with a uniqueness of oratory to please
minds with tension to release
so i tell it all round.
