"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

STRANGE

STRANGEFRUIT

Fountain spiggles

Man with hose   squirts

as man with pole   steady’s      the world

 

In Syria   chemical warfare

In Boston  legless boy  wheelchair     bound

In America  the many  say:    no  burial

for young terrorist   crushed under brother’s   car

 

Grass covered in dandelions   School term done

Pure slim boys sit around wrought iron tables     praying for a future

I want to go home    Poetry causing palpitations

 

Man with hose   bludgeoned      Man with pole

singing a tune    Poet warped by violent video   games

 

*Reading this may cause paranoia
