A FLEA TAKES

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

a flea takes

a bit out

of my foot

and thoughts

of poets imprisoned

in Libya disappear

 

I have to scratch

the itch

which of course

will only make it worse

and I have

yet to join

Amnesty International

 

but the plans

are sidetracked 

again

I scratch the bit

that itches

 

Poets in jail?

Where?

 

How soon

we lose sight

of our goal.
