Wheat field – stands of golden grain

Bread basket –  our lives to sustain

A staff of life – giving us our fill

And yet Wheat field can be a bitter pill

 

The Wheat field – and the harvesting of grain

But also a harvest of inhuman pain

At Gettysburg  – Sickles’ – ironic his name

As by his order – a Wheatfield –

Was filled with the slain

 

Wheat field golden – production of bread

Name associated with life, and the dead

The despondent correspondent

Stepped from the briefing room

He had said such mean things to her

When she entered just a moment too soon

 

How could he say it’s all news fake –

And personally attack her journal-ism?

Should she her school and paper defend?

After all she’s only eleven

Man
In his
Arrogance
With brick and slime
Sought to upwards climb
At Shinar to Heaven
Disobeying the command —
“Multiply and fill all the land”
In a single place to prideful stay
Until tongues were confused – meanings made grey

Half Truths and Prevarication

imageedit_0_8058394484 (1)

Dachau Gate^

 

The way to control your people

Is to lie and then lie again

Make the lies so huge and colossal

That there’s no doubt that they could be pretend*

 

And then when you think you’ve got them

Half truths and prevarications extend

Be it a Dachau or Oswiecim

On people’s hopes and fears depend**

 

If you want to convince your people

Of your need to go to war

Tell them that mass destruction awaits them

In 45 minutes  – not a moment more

 

Remind the public often

They live in a democracy

Where everyone’s free and equal –

Just maybe – not as much as thee

Wave

imageedit_4_4541661376 (1)

Blue-grey expanse tipped with white

Risings and fallings

Patterned in unpatterned array

Is that not the wave before me

That I set my gaze upon yesterday?

Not so unique as one might suppose

A companion lingering –

Unwilling to allow me to move too far away?

To think so of a wave

Is that a sign of madness coming on?

Or is it just that I’ve been too long at sea

As the voyage drags on and on?

You tried to ruin me,

But I knew it could not be done.

I played along with your belief

That you had against me won.

What you could not have known

In your malicious deeds and thought

Was that I had already  – the company

With my savings bought.

 

PS:  Please empty your desk by the end of business Friday.

But it is there – like a butterfly

That imagination can happily play

Box To Build (ABP 7)

Beams to cut

Pitch to boil

A box to build

A God-sent toil

 

Upon ground

As dry as sand

A vessel to construct

On water-less land

 

Nevertheless – my sons and me

Will follow the divine instruction

Build the ark and the animals feed

Before all by rain – faces destruction
