"Reality has specificity / Specific gravities unique to each"

On the Universal Specificity of Reality

The zenith of the whole celestial sphere
As well as its nadir are both right here
The celestial sphere is here inside me
It is also true it is inside you

Reality has specificity
Specific gravities unique to each
And each reality its lessons teach
As all the stars glisten: look and listen

Unreal to me are war and eating meat
Also alcohol drugs and folderol
And those who enjoy their war in Iraq
Should go fight it there and save their attack
For their imagined enemies not these
Mothers and others who worry and reach
Out to seek peace when the world has gone mad

If Bush and Blair love war so let them go
And fight it themselves and I would be glad
But leaders are liars as all now see
I do not consume what others excrete

Each and every consciousness has its own
Specific universe: leave mine alone

LOL when i saw your comments on C Hottran's space, I knew I should come and read you. The title drew me in, and the specific applicability of the poem leads me to applaud the craftiness and universality of your write. Kudos, poet.

Yes, some can't accept that some choose not to follow blindly and prefer to think independently. The world's ills can be found in just that attitude. Such is life. Powerful...Lin

Well said Steve, too often the ones who control and direct wars have never been in the heat of battle or watched buddies die before there eys. Paper pushers don't cry when Johnie don't come marching home.

'I do not consume what others excrete'.... very strong words in this poem but aptly put. I won't digest the bull- either!
