Poem

 

City Boy Vs.* the Encroachment* of Nature

 

The Birds got their Revenge,

was it?  And further, do

the loose cats know

something more is coming?

 

I brake for skunks.

 

The chipmunks are almost faster

than the eye can see.

A racoon climbs the vertical wall

to the trash dumpster lip.

(Road kill.)

The fawn was more graceful

than they so small and wobbly

are made out to be,

and it escaped my wheel

unlike the inert critter –

(I thought it was a squirrel,

But it pro’ly was a rat.)

Deer dart in and out

of the suburbs, —

Will we see them

on the ball courts next?

 

We may lose our food bank

Because of a mouse –

SHE doesn’t want them in the building.

A mouse or mice lived in my T.V. box.

(Lots of turds.)

One died there.

 

The Chinese build 2 coal power plants

per week, and

the Governor says

yes we can strip mine the entire state of Montana,

yet I’m concerned that the rabbits

in their burrows

may not be able to read their eviction notices

on time

since they don’t seem to do that well

with the eye chart.

 

If I’m on my front porch

in the desert of the American West,

maybe I’ll see a snake;

I don’t think I’ll care for it,

but rather for a remedy

of man’s inhumanity.

Let the glaciers fall

into the sea.

And if the EPA lets me breath out CO2

(a greenhouse gas)

I will continue to breath in.

            So that’s a poem I’ve mentioned before.  Global warming?  Maybe a half a degree. 

The orthodox dude at the JCC crowded my space and bumped (I said excuse me.)  Of him, I can say, he’s not Christian.  Perhaps he’s with the right wing settlers who should be educated.  I need to continue to show respect to my benefactors.

I’m now in new pain and I blame the mafia as the bad guys.  The Israeli air strike at Syria in September, 2007 was mentioned today on the news against conspiracy with North Korea.  That strike was cleared with the U.S.  Do you think George W. is going to clear it with you before he hits Iran?  I hope I’m wrong, maybe.  I should check with Kambiz, my would be friend from Iran.  Is there anything he can say to stave off an invasion?  In this country I was in the streets in 1979 against the Iranian kidnappings.  As Billy Jack would say, I try and I try… to support Israel.
