Hammer Hurts

I know how the hammer hurts,
How it hurts and is hurting,
When it all goes smash bang
And someone else falls down.
And the hammer can only build
With shiny new nails–(shiny, new!)
Until the new becomes old
And it’s smash bang again…
And again…and again,
Because hammers can’t build mirrors,
And nails just rust when they cry.
