balloons

by Henry Burt Stevens
June 30 2008

blowed up balloons
red green and black

blowed up houses
black green and red

blowed up children
mommies daddies too

ah democracy
and freedom's air

we even blowed up
Maliki's cousin too

but that one we'll
have to pay for

dearly

One day you'll wake up and there will be no balloons. Just a clear blue sky, serenity and euphoric silence. Trust me.

Wit-wise... "ballons" strikes satire and flahes a great message.


I salute You, Poet.
