Tired * by Langston Hughes

I am so tired of waiting,
Aren't you,
For the world to become good
And beautiful and kind?
Let us take a knife
And cut the world in two-
And see what worms are eating
At the rind.

"Langston Huges is a titianic figure in 20th-century American literature...a powerful interpreter of the American experince...His poems are as vital as ever."
-Philadephia Inquirer
