Dragons rule this world                                             I wanna be left for heaven

And monkeys dance after them                                  Alone

Monkeys in underpants                                             I wanna watch

As if high on play-doh                                               You scramble your eggs

And there are no Captain Planets                               Drinking your sweet milk

So in time this atmosphere will turn us all                   Inside out

Yellow                                                                     A crimson

Blue                                                                       Clover

Green                                                                    I wanna be left to watch

Babies blown to smithereens                                    From heaven

“But sticks and stones won’t hurt us people of plastic,” the believers say.

And the philosophers say, “If you’re made of plastic you’re just gonna melt.”

Now all over the globe

Governments ban Beauty and the Beast

For bestiality

And little girls are convulsing from kissing frogs

That stay frogs when kissed

And opening the child’s window

In the middle of the night

Peter Pan plays pedophile

While the gods watch

                                                                                If there’s a heaven

    Quite the scathing commentary here. And another clever structure to the poem. I was reading the left half, and then the right half, and then each line across.

  2. I really like the structure of this one. It’s always nice to see how words can flow down the page in various ways. Wicked!

  3. Oh, I like this one Bejamin – the rhythm is wonderful. I will have to come back to your site for more – this is great

    I really dig your usage of space. Keep doing your thing. It’s fresh! Very inspiring. Thanks!

    ah! “Beauty and the Beast” – did you see the movie by Jean Cocteau, a masterpiece of French cinéma…? Your poetry resembles your prose, clever and profound…
