Desert Palm

Here’s a palm
merits alms
— the strong arm
of psalms,
steeped in balm,
to calm:
healing harm,
stilling alarm;
without qualms
in animal farms
’midst a storm
of napalm —
once a schoolmarm,
now cool and warm
works like a charm
— Salaam —

In the beginning was the word. And I got paid for it.
