Know Your Enemies


I know what tongues tastes like
I know what hungry eyes see
I know what lonely ears hear
I know what broken hearts feel
But can't phantom one sure thing
How modern minds think.
****
Just take a random look around
What a mess coming from the top
We should change world order
Have bottoms rule the top
****
From Seas to Shining Sea
From Baghdad to Tripoli
Form Palestine to Somalia
From Euro to Dollar land
From Yuan to Dirham
****
Every spot under the Sun
Boiling to meltdown
Is this the end of my 2-legged line?
Then revert me to my original 4 instead
At least in the jungle clarity assured
Friends from enemies!
****

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
