Of What Use

–Of what use is money to a dying man
Of what use is a glass of water to a drowning man
— Of what use are rain drops to a crying man
Of what use are bread crumbs to a dead black swan
— Of what use are promises that began with Yes We Can
Of what use are leaders that ended with a Book and Speech plan
— Of what use are Peace Prizes that killed a Nation
Of what use are speeches when you care more for the pronunciation
— Of what use is truth if it does not get you a vote
Of what use is a free press if all they do is note
— Of what use is poetry if we are all destined to starve
Of what use is an apple that refused to be carved  
— Of what use are stamps for free milk if the child is already dead
Of what use is health care if you were raped and tied to the bed
— Of what use is freedom if your house was tore down
Of what use is a plastic surgery to a man who works as a clown
