That radioactive satellite, the one crashed into Canadas northwestern quarter,
Saved New York from nuclear bombardment, her inhabitants from deliquescing
Until such time as politicians might use catchwords for global peace, unity.
It seems that underworld bosses worked together, on the sly, to stymie the calamity,
To save Americans most brazen city along with Moscow. Those crooks rejected all
Transnational rectifications, knowing government representatives obviate goodwill.
They were okay sacrificing Cacnucks. To self-serving Mafioso, vast timberlands,
Crystal lakes, bounteous reserves of buffalo, elk, wolf, reindeer, and coyotes serve
Ecologists, not power brokers, improve the planet, aid no international influencers.
I Observed the World
From a mountain top,
Covered in summer flowers,
I observed the world.
Occasionally, true love gets spurned in favor of gymnasts pictures or Asian Studies notes.
Even pretty boiseries function contrariwise when painted over with dried latex, dirty brushes.
Whereas trashing initially meant repurposing unclaimed goods, today, it references trouble.
Pleomorphic happiness isnt limited to reshaping symbols by means of malignant neoplasms
Or countering evidence that injurious replies to environmental states requiring answerability.
Rather, clam broth promises, misleading car ads, Artex plus Anaglypta, half pennies, endure.
Semiannual vacations serve little use when sourced at locales like Socotra Island, Andorra,
Lesotho, Zambias Four Corners, Kasane, Campione dItalia ( regardless of Wi-Fi access).
Scrims wonders, too, are inhibited by disagreeable upholstery fashions, stale bread salvers.
Autumnal pleasures, after all, are best left for red carpet recognition, See, Little League All
Star games, grandmas confusing oldness with boldness, pedigreed Lowchens, Salukis,
Tend to rely on taped books, borrowing other folks judgements, also the newest nail art.
