Ferlinghetti ' Pity the nation...'

E-mail Print PDF

Jill Badonsky
Pity
the nation whose leaders are liars, whose sages are silenced,
and whose bigots haunt the airwaves.
Pity
the nation that raises not its voice,
except to praise conquerors and acclaim the bully as hero
and aims to rule the world with force and by torture.
Pity
the nation that knows no other language but its own
and no other culture but its own.
Pity
the nation whose breath is money
and sleeps the sleep of the too well fed.
Pity
the nation — oh, pity the people who allow their rights to erode
and their freedoms to be washed away.
My country, tears of thee, sweet land of liberty.”

― Lawrence Ferlinghett

Le corse mozzafiato attraverso i sogni... L.S.

" Le corse mozzafiato
attraverso
i sogni
ti lasciano in nuda sorpresa,
e, cosi,
dolcemente
ti porto
giu' nei posti piu' segreti
dove i semi degli alberi
s'inumidiscono di rugiada" - Cherokee sprouts -

'The Universe has Five Things to Say About Hearting'
...
3 - The Sun orbits the Black Hole

at the centre of the galaxy

Trade your enlightenement

for a higher form of innocence

enter the mystery and taste

the dark soma wine of being -

 

Bruce Lyon  - from 'Heart' - Poetry
