Comfort Food (10a)

COMFORT FOOD

Eight folk own
Half of the globe’s wealth*
They’re all men
(Mais bien sûr)
As boys loved Monopoly
And never grew up

~~~~~~~~~~~

*A recent report by Oxfam International highlights the dramatic rise in income equality by noting that the combined wealth of the world’s top 8 individual billionaires is more than the lower half of the world’s population, some 3.6 billion people. The intention of the report was to bring awareness to the unfairness and injustice inherent in our global economic system.

Just 8 Men Own Same Wealth As Half The World.

Sick At Heart (7a)

SICK AT HEART

All the signs
Erupting pustules
Orlando
Las Vegas
Middle East a sarcoma
It’s clearly Stage Four

The Launch (2b) (or not 2b ;) )

THE LAUNCH

Cheese and wine
The bigwigs are here
Backslapping
Backhanders
That’s what gave the project wings
Look, here’s a model!

It looks nice
But it’s supposed to
And notice
Those handshakes*
Farewell, God bless, sweet Nature
Here’s a mall instead

TARNISHED CHROME

Always remember
No such thing as a free lunch
Google … Predator

Dirty Business

DIRTY BUSINESS

Too much pollution
In our air, in our water
In our politics

“There is the path of wisdom and the path of ignorance. They are far apart and lead to different ends … Abiding in the midst of ignorance, thinking themselves wise and learned, fools go aimlessly hither and thither like the blind led by the blind. What lies beyond life shines not to those who are childish, or careless, or deluded by wealth. ”

– Katha Upanishad,

POTUS Poots Forth Another

POTUS POOTS FORTH ANOTHER

“Wake up, Pop, you have to meet the press.”
“What is it this time? Why can’t I just tweet?”
“This Harvey thing’s too big. You have to meet.
And be careful not to look like you couldn’t care less.”

“Why don’t you go, Ivanka, in a slinky low-cut dress?
Distract ’em. Let your booty take the heat.”
“But you’ll be on TV, centre stage, comfy seat.”
“Well in that case … Oh no! Look! My hair’s a mess.”

Now he’s in make-up sat polishing his schtick
And figuring out ways he can stroll off with some big money.
“I’ll have him deported.” “I’ll make Mexico build a big wall.”
“I’ll nuke him.” “The bigger they are, the harder they fall.”

Trouble is while thousands are suffering yer bumpkin’s so thick
He thinks “this Harvey thing” is an invisible six-foot bunny.

While The Fittest Survived …

WHILE THE FITTEST SURVIVED …

Man’s ego
(Note the gender)
Misreads the message
Sets God aside
Takes over
In a mindless haze
Heads heedlessly
For the nearest cliff

Don’t look a gift horse
In the mouth the saying goes
That’s where the fangs are
But they never tell you that
Or the reason why they don’t

Priorities

PRIORITIES

I see the plastic
Of cooking oil containers
Is even thinner
Though more to do with profit
Than sustainability

The Kiss

THE KISS

Perhaps you may keep
The silver you have taken
But never the gold
