10 Poets from last week’s challenge of START and their Décimas. All links open in a new window when clicked on.
Please be sure to visit everyone at least once if you haven’t already. More variety than I thought would happen this week with the prompt word being Gift.

Beginnings-Endings-Drollery to be Sure
In life, we must all play our part,
a lead role, yes, and sometimes less,
the second fiddle, I confess,
is where we must by default start.
Though a baby’s cry tugs the heart,
and often is the shriller voice,
a missive noting that it’s moist,
parents assume their rightful place,
caregiver, slave, best done with grace
and wit, as if there is much choice.

Sharing mine here, since I obviously didn’t ping back successfully. https://dontforgetthehalf.wordpress.com/2021/03/06/her-courage-matters-decima/
I couldn’t have ping ponged it properly either so here is mine:
As Capital tears us apart
and profits from labourers’ toil,
we seek, in the tillage of soil,
a flowering, welcoming heart.
So let me suggest, as a start,
production, now owned by the few,
is freed from the oligarch’s screw,
communalised, structured and planned,
with redistribution of land.
Society reborn anew.
