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,

This Gem

This gem is dedicated to my U.S. “followers”. (What an unfortunate term that is.) My thoughts are frequently with you in your plight.

At times I think satire is all that’s left. Other times I see it differently.

And there’s always poetry.

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.

PRETTY BOY BLIND

She is available
You’re irresistible
You don’t see a problem
And just there’s your problem

Hay To ‘n’ For The Chief

HAY TO ‘n’ FOR THE CHIEF

They never arrived
The forty acres and mule
Just the mule it seems

Overreach

OVERREACH

A single hand clap
Intended to rouse the world
Just startled the cat

Racism Rules? Go Figure

RACISM RULES? GO FIGURE

Gordon Brown*
Is white,
While Barry White*
Was brown

The world is
A very strange
And confusing place

Standing Rock

STANDING ROCK

I have a struggle
In comprehending those

Who are using rubber bullets and tear gas
On these unarmed and peaceful protesters

How far they have lost their way
Since their birth as innocents

I wonder what lives they have endured
To have them land up in this dismal situation

Still, you do get a kind of identity
And the uniform and weapons come free

A Handful Of Sexualities

A HANDFUL OF SEXUALITIES

Four fingers, one thumb.
Various parts; the same hand.
Words; names; attitudes.
Different, not separate.
Cut one off and all feel pain.

A SAD BLIGHT

A SAD BLIGHT

None so blind as those
Who, given the gift of sight
Cannot, will not see
