Double Standards (Revised)

When wrong is done
We must condemn,
Prevaricate must none.
When innocents are slain
By truth we honour them.

Now we see unfurled,
In clear and hideous light
A double-speaking World -
Some wickedness is condoned
Making darker darkest night.

Late the Double-standard learns
As innocent blood runs deep -
That the fire both ways burns
The pendulum knows but to and fro
First forward, then back sweep.

Collaring The Elephant

Entranquiled by a darted potion
Upon his bushheld range,
The elephant's world is in slow motion
It seems almighty strange.

Presently he falls down in slumbers;
People rush to his side
For they would track him as he wanders
His range in easy stride.

And when his paraplegia clears,
He is enhanced by tech
For a transmitter now he wears
In collar round his neck.

And by the means of this device,
As all will surely guess
The bearings, when they're measured twice,
His whereabouts express.

  15.     

A Bounty Concealed

A haunting voice sure, clear and strong
Now fills the fading sky
In soul-stirring dusk-time song;
A bushveld lullaby:
An owl to hold you in its thrall
 In pearl bespotted plume,
Whistles out its bewitching call;
A sad, spell-binding rune.

The harsh land so little signs
The bounty it conceals
Nor foretells of its designs
Which this bird's song reveals:
Stout-hearted owl of tiny frame
Does with golden voice impart
Peace of spirit in life's game;
Harmony of mind and heart.

(With apologies to Thomas Hardy)

Life 111

Life, sometimes I forget
You are a mixture of
Elements, opposite to each,
Number in two, trap in between,
I forget, your essence exits
In between the banks
Where I am left to remain afloat
