GLASS JAR

Folder: 
TROUBADOR'S CHOICE

 

Empathizing 

with the mouse

caught in a glass jar

being fed crumbs

while diplomats & royals feast

 

The empire, under fire

from without and within

and the crumbling dreams

dusted with powder anthrax;

the visions indeed infected.

 

I’ll be stumbling off

to catch a regional high speed line

wondering if any good

can come of the delusion

and will the mouse escape

 

I want to raise a toast

to the health of the world’s children

or liberty in a Tom Paine sense

that the powers that be

seem determined to vanquish.
