Laws Of Galileo


In tarry darkness cigarets unlit make chewing tobacco unreasonable
London's out of its wits as eastern Georgia springs to unseasonable
My coffee cup is missing & I don't know where she is, that waitress
In this party gown I'm too often mistaken for a State's star witness
The immutable laws of Galileo, Newton and Einstein are fairy tales
Look out howling chill-monkey as this fixed-point radar often fails
Meet planked flooring howling chill-monkey as a broken tie derails
Greetings Mr. Kumar of Mother India, as Puja monsoons bring rain
Please Gracious Allāhu Akbar, protect your servant Parwas Hussein

Poet's Notes about The Poem

PEOPLE IN POOR COUNTRIES
The nuisance & unexpectedness of an unplanned bowel movement makes it often that young people ask: “Am I too young to bear an unexpected bowel movement? What about health insurance? Golly gee whiz, my Mom's behind me but Dad's unwilling! Can the republican party help me at all? What about the democrats? ”
Well, nothing in life is free & you can't expect something for nothing. With the next unexpected b.m. you might wanna consider: People in poor countries can't afford more than one a day if that. A family of 4 gets by on two.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
