Loose Change

LOOSE CHANGE

Endoscopy opens to a hush, closes to applause
Dramatis personæ stride and snivel in between
While the playwright owns up as simply the you
In disguise and of course vice versa – All change!
Newton, Einstein, Erwin and his imaginary cat
A different sounding at each fresh embouchure

Bringing light, demolishing the old – All change!
Revolution on revolution yet nothing changes
Ancient foolishnesses replayed ad nauseam
Minotaurs and dinosaurs strut the halls of power
External, internal weapons of mass distraction

Eternal, essential the pulse the pulse the pulse
Distorted persists, breathes through every pore
Where would we be without our surroundings?
In a flash flood, a roar and a blaze of lightning
The walls of the citadel quiver and fall – All change!
As Alice tiptoes lightly through her looking glass

Boundless waters surround us as above so below
Rivers linger not and carry our bread away
A true love that will neither fade nor wither
Memories drift like leaves torn from a book
Even as the moving hand writes on – All change!

Evenings herald nights overburdened with
Dark eldritch dreams peopled by eery voices
“Wake up at the back there! Pay attention!”
I look around and find myself looking around
“Ninety-eight, ninety-nine …” – “All change!”
“At the third stroke …” “At the third stroke …”

Buy new improved, ditch the old – All change!
Rapine of the earth is not a spectator sport
Advertisements invade us twenty-five-seven
More and more of less is what and all we need
Emergency! Emergency! All hands on deck!

Justitia’s Secret

Justicia

JUSTITIA’S SECRET

A black and white world
Would be so much easier
But it just ain’t so.

 

Nonetheless Taoists
After pondering the Whole
Manage a balance.

What A To-do

WHAT A TO-DO

What a commotion
What a to-do! What a to-do!
We live while they die
They die while we live
What a commotion
What a to-do! What a to-do!

The past and the future
What a to-do! What a to-do!
List upon list upon list upon list
What a to-do! What a to-do!
Desires, revulsions
What a to-do! What a to-do!

Entrappedments
What a to-do! What a to-do!
Needful extraditions
What a to-do! What a to-do!
To not do may allow
A release

A releasing
A relaxing
As tomorrow
Dissolving
Leaves space
Where time was

Plague On Wheels

PLAGUE ON WHEELS*

It was one of those
All too frequent times
So many of the buggers
They couldn’t even move

Mesmerised
Hypnotised
Repeating
Ad nauseum

“You like
Carbon monoxide
It’s good for your health
It’s good for the planet”

“You like
Carbon monoxide
It’s good for your health
It’s good for the planet”

“You like
Carbon monoxide
It’s good for your health
It’s good for the planet”

“Would you like
To share my deadly poison?”
I dream of being asked and reply
“No, thank you all the same
But please do have my share yourself”

Viewpoint

VIEWPOINT

Standing in the moment.
Was it the world moving?
The planet revolving?
Stillness an illusion?

Feast Days And Fast Days (22b)

FEAST DAYS AND FAST DAYS

Celebrate
Meanwhile others starve?
Best forget
Otherwise
It becomes difficult to
Enjoy food at all

On The Crests Of Waves

ON THE CRESTS OF WAVES

What new worlds shall we
Not simply determine to create
But share today?

What new worlds shall we
Not simply determine to share
But create today?

Gathered (A Four By Six)

GATHERED

Here in the sight of God
Be both sight and blindness
Trespass and forgiveness
Godhood and lunacy
