Soldiers gather on the battlefields

politicians on capital hill.

Saints gather in the synogauges

sinners in their local bars.

The rich gather on wal-street

the poor in un-employment lines.

The children gather in schools

their parents in divorce courts.

The writters gather in coffee shops

their agents at western steer.

As for us Poets- well,

were all gathered here!
