We might have snow, or at least slush next week
according to the weather intelligentsia,
it is already tomorrow in Australia,
a tsunami passed by friends and strangers
in Hawaii yesterday
and today
almost 16000 children have already died
from hunger or hunger-related sickness,
the walls are still 30 feet high through what
is Palestine, the land of bulldozed olive trees read more »

Turkey Shoot

it's a turkey shoot out there,
the sky is falling, bullets hailing everywhere
there is no safe place left on earth,
no sanctuary for the innocent
streets of anger are spilling blood and the earth is
a vampire,
we've forgotten how to be light of heart
and I wonder if language is the fruit of all
evil, Jacob's ladder is burning through the
clouds

While We Fan The Flame

Some people think new drilling
Up In ANWR and offshore
Is the only, best, solution
So, we can produce some more.

Doesn’t anyone have suspicions
About those White House oilmen
Who let the price run rampant
Doesn’t anyone blame them?

You can bet they will happy
Laughing their way to the bank
I wonder, after they leave office read more »

Another Independence Day

We’re another year older now
And, I wonder, what they’d say
Those who wrote our Declaration
For our Independence Day?

I bet they’re turning in their graves
To see, where our Country’s going
As we lose those hard won Freedoms
And, as our apathy keeps growing.

Our Government spies on us
“Big brother”, has come here read more »

~Anna

Most of us belong to that other group,
the dreamless wanderers,
converging under protest songs and patriot games,
fevers blistering tongues,

scattered
to the four corners of the earth,
we are genderless misfits
whose only earthly prize
is the will to speak of the truth,
"To thine own self be true"
our mantra,

Shakespearean players
preach to an empty choir, read more »

~Anna

Esmeralda was dancing in the streets
while the King of Fools was being crowned
Hugo was hunched over
a flickering candlelight
like a grotesque shadow,
goose quill in hand …
in the meantime in a far-and-away land
once upon a time
a poet reads that the nearly dead can never walk
further than an imaginary line crossing over
and under
every house of worship, read more »
