IT’S ALL GREEN

IT’S  ALL  GREEN        TO ME

One day the gardener said:  (in his best Charlton Heston)

Ma’am that tree is dead   then he stared off into the distance

It was time to leave our High Park street   One neighbour a

reputed war criminal    another  dead on his porch after 4 yrs.

of merciless cane-banging   11 years have come and gone and

a gaggle of geese make their way South  honking like Illinois Jacquet 

I am trapped  in a green village  on a blue LAKE (with a trampoline for the grankids)

 

While   at a concert 2 nights before   Patti Smith  screeched and spat  & then spat

some more:  Say No to Syria   Say No to Obama    Edward Snowden is a Nigger

 

The world is a noisy place    A new pedagogical theory says:  Everything is better

in groups          Shoot Me

I like to watch Eve.   Chauncey The Gardener    (Being There  1979)

    This is likely the one and only time that Illinois Jacquet and Patti Smith will be mentioned on the same page.
