Oil Droplets
(Barf Bag Poem # 17)

Since when do countries shoot to kill
for no apparent reason?
And how do liars get away
with what amounts to treason?
Since when does cheating in full view
give cheaters greater power?
And how many souls among us know
how to turn grain to flour?
Sing it Yossou, scream it Bruce,
Paint it pink, help lead the truce.
Since when is greed the proper mode,
Compassion put on hold?
Was it 1980 when all decency
was traded permanently for gold?
Medical advances: only for the few,
workers work for less out in Katmandu.
Quick, let’s move more jobs,
and float the products overseas!
Imagine what’s in store for us
as the oil droplets cease.
