queue

Queue

It was a queue,


That I hardly knew,

 

Would be so elongated,


Like an anaconda extended.

 

 

The necessity was mine,


When the sun would shine,


Bright like a diamond, I did follow,


The infinite queue!


 

Time seemed to have stopped entirely,


I felt too crestfallen and unhappy,


Since like a cow cart the process was,


Moving on thus.


 

Because of standing long enough,


Numb went my feet and it was tough,


To keep standing,


I wished for a better change in everything.


 

The policymakers must act properly,


To lessen the commoners’ agony,


Fastness and efficiency we need,

 

Please stop letting the hearts bleed.

WORD QUEUE

*

Like bees around a bloom
many thoughts swirl
in a writer's brain.
Is it a mystery that
they line up obediently
in a queue to be penned
one word at a time?

*

SATURN RINGS

*

The rings of Saturn
make one desire
a cage
rather than infinity.
 *

Footnote:
Yevgeny Yevtushenko: If one is
used to a cage he will weep for
a cage. (written after visiting
a mink concentration camp
in the US as there are sable
ones in Russia)

*

KIDNAPPING

 *

There are veterinarians
who don't release
pets brought to them
until a bill is paid
in full.
Imagine what would
happen if a human children's
hospital did that.
It is the polar opposite of
the Hippocratic Oath.

MONGEESE

*

Seeking refuge
under wild
mangering trees of mango
Hawaiian mongeese
hide from trappers.
