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 Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
