26 Mar 2016 – Weeds

Fear mongers fighting for Lemming-in-Chief,
xenophobes rise to the world’s disbelief.
Hell’s mouth is open with warm welcome signs,
countless the applicants waiting in line.

You’re caught by surprise? Say you didn’t know?
Have you never fought back that undertow?
Don’t be surprised that the lines have grown long,
Wonder instead that you don’t come along!

None of man’s evils will biodegrade.
Unseen for ages, the dirt of one spade
between us and all we would wish away.
Weed and wheat answer the wind as they sway.
