Watching the interview,
you are grinning like a Cheshire cat
at the Mad Hat(t)ers
“Nobody’s being hurt-
Its for your own good-
We will win this fight-
It is the principle of the thing.”
And all the time
Someone else has lit the flame
flickering behind your eyes.
And that grin
is only hiding
*A repost of a poem written many years ago. Seems somehow appropriate for today.
The Beatles tune keeps running thru my head – “I read the news today, oh boy.”
over all the talking heads
and well groomed, earnest readers. “And though the news was rather sad
Well I just had to laugh.”
Feeling lucky to have the satellite company
that’s feuding with Ted Turner-
leaving a block of channels
(ordinarily filled with opinion and conjecture
dressed up as NEWS)
just not there.
no news is good news.
We cuddle in the chill autumn air
watching breaking news-
wild geese descend onto the still waters of the cove.
Film at eleven.
