TREE WISE MONKEYS

If you close your eyes

to the world outside,

will the fighting suddenly cease?

Will brother and sister

hold hands together

and build a new life of peace?

 

Does a person, born blind,

not hear the teeth grind

as disaster, from greed, is grown?

That because he can’t see,

thinks we're are all living free

and reaping the seeds we have sown?

Poison vapours

etched in gloom.

Ghastly, void,

vacant, the guardian of

a chained black gate.

 

Never sleeping;

eyes, as heads,

unnumbered;

SOME POLITICIANS

Some politicians are like tarts,

No cash or cause refusable;

They'll fuck with anyone - hands on hearts,

No promise inexcusable.

 

Some politicians are like sluts,

Haggling near a station;

Hear them use those "ifs" and "buts"

To find accommodation.

 

Some politicians are like jades

Whose looks are going fast;

Making hay ere summer fades,

Its h...
