Thanksgiving – Thank you OWS

Was it only this past summer that Andrei Codrescu was wondering where on earth are the people who object?  Why isn’t anyone out on street, carrying a sign, why isn’t anyone saying  anything?  It’s about three months since then.  That’s all.

Hello.  Hello.  Hello.  Thank you!  And count on us to support peaceful protest!  As Basil wrote for George Stanley:

There is hunger

There is always hunger

A mouth a page a canvas

A colored eye

A thirsty tongue

Bring him in bring him in

Bring in the forgotten

The twin the initiator

The sky Blue

Green initiator

Bring him in bring him in

The car the automobile

With side walls the house

Between continents

A perplexed roof

Bring him in bring him in

There is hunger

There is always hunger

A mouth a page a canvas

A colored eye

A thirsty tongue

The country is in trouble

No one will come forward

No one will initiate

The New Year

Bring him in bring him in

Bring in the forgotten

The twin the initiator

The sky Blue

Green initiator

Bring him in, people, bring him in!  It’s what artists are meant to do.
