Create an eraser that would erase

create an eraser that would erase
every lie found in this place
[although that might leave too much space
as lies is, mostly, what there is.]

and when the moutains are brought low
and the valleys are exhaulted…
won(t things be quite as they were
before you got started?

Swords into ploughshares?
is that what you’re saying?
Well I suppose that thinking
at all beats praying…
but when you’re hungry
you won’t survive seasons
before lunch…
at least with a sword
[and some luck and some skill]
you can knock down a coconut
for something to munch.


(I was hungry when I wrote this:-)
