Poem: And then the leaves fell

autumn-leaves-2

Look at the colours.
Breathe that air.
Kick through those leaves.
Just because they’re there.

Snap that stick.
Kick that stone.
Feel the sun.
Feel at one.

Leave the world
far behind.
Forget your life,
the daily grind.

Imagine that tree
is a castle tall.
Imagine kicking that stone
didn’t hurt at all.

And the leaves fell

With the sound of rain

But I didn’t notice

No, I didn’t notice

Because I was too busy

Being nine again.

Sock it to Me

Words fail me...but not for long

Words fail me…but not for long

I don’t write poetry very often (and you can see why):

When Joni Mitchell sang “put away that DDT”

“Give me spots on my apples and the birds and the bees”

I have to say I absolutely agree

You can’t kill nature chemically.

Monsanto and their buddies have patented the soil

You sign up to them – wadda ya get for your toil

The answer, my friend, makes my blood boil

They make you spray your field with leftover oil!

I know “Big Everything” only cares about its stocks

Value for its shareholders, for its ever-faithful flocks

I didn’t think they could invent any more shocks

BUT NOW THEY’RE PUTTING BIOCIDE IN MY SODDING SOCKS!!

oOo
