Nonsense in the Key of See

New York Babylon

politicians who don’t get along

parades of stupidity by the deplorably strong

images that are just plain wrong

freedom is facing a swansong

swing low and bang the bong

racists don’t belong

shades of King Kong

a saint in a sarong

pimps playing ping pong

the growing throng

you might as well come along

after all, we all belong

50 words –

Between wakefulness and awareness the cocoon shifts in expectation

It does not pause to look back at it’s origin or try to look into the future

The butterfly’s epiphany is living in the moment
