THE ALBATROSS By Nikos Laios


The oil
Derrick
Bores,
As the
Old man
Snores.

albatross00_400While the
sparrows
Chirp, as
The cars
Crawl across
The globe,
Like a
Chain of
Caterpillars.

In our smog
Filled skies
The hungry
Cry out;while
The women
Are trafficked
And sold,
And the 
Child soldiers
Kill off their
Old.

High,the
Albatross
Flies;across
The cornfields
And watermelon
Patch,across
The North-sea
Fishermen
Bringing in their fleet,
Across the ballerinas
With their flashing feet,
Across the burning
Oil fields and their
Smashing bombs,
Across the dancing
Children in their
Mother's wombs.

As the lamp
Light sputters,
And the old
Man mutters;
The baby
Sucks its
Mother's
Tit.
