To say that money
Measures wealth, floods life’s meaning,
Could be just naive
In truth, how a tool is used
Cannot be blamed on the tool.
Today’s prompt – “to write a palinode…a poem in which the poet retracts a statement made in an earlier poem.”
So, looking at yesterday’s Tanka – consider it retracted! 🙂
(okay, I realize this is not an ode (as in palin-ode) but liked the idea of using the same form for the retraction!). Hope you like it?
