Rich Men Can`t Limbo

On the Allied Coalition against The Islamic State of The Levant in Iraq and Syria.
Or White Men Can`t Limbo

Alas, The World proved too big for even Alexander.
Who was sent by Osiris
to dwell in lands, beyond the Black Sea.

Certainly the medicinal benefits of Opium
would have reached Gravenstein Palace
in due time;
But the thought of being Shown Up by the Portuguese,
was simply too much.

So our Fearless Leader
Who`s job it is, to conjure
Manifest Destiny,
into Joy To The World
and Peace On Earth
To All Men Of Good Will.

So we don`t argue
or Politics
over Thanksgiving Dinner,
And the Issues
and Concerns
That beset Humanity;
Are settled with same hypocrisy
of Ethics,
As these
these Dictators,

Vincent Van Gogh`s Wheat Fields near Arles

The Great Dragon
lies in a field of Golden Grain
bathing in the late afternoon sunshine
like an Ancient Persian Treasure.

Anticipating the first Full Moon
of Autumn
to rise at Perigee
in September

Suspended densely in the clockwork spectacle
like a supernatural Mother of Pearl 

The Turning World
Is Perfect
as an Ingoldsby Legend

or a Grimm’s Fairy Tale.
