More Important Matters

The news reels on
Reporters complain
Friends call and protests form

The new president Trump
Makes videos, sends tweets
Appoints cabinet positions
Tossing out bait to hook you in

But I am busy today
The hummingbird feeder is empty
And every time I hear it squeak
or zoom through the crisp morning air
I feel a pang of guilt
An urgent need to make refilling
The red sugar water a priority

Choosing to spend my time
On more important matters
