  201.     

Eclipsed From Sleep

I am a man advanced in years
And for the most part need my sleep.
I’m usually in bed by nine
Not that I want to be abed;
You’ll find out if you live this long
That the mind is always younger
Than the body it occupies.
What this means is I’m often
forced to do things against my will.
Last night is a good example:
I wanted to see the eclipse
Of the moon beginning early
In the AM morning hours.
I struggled long to stay awake:
I sat in a comfortable chair
Anticipating the eclipse
With tired eyes through my window
Only to involuntary
Fall asleep and missed the damn thing.

  202.     

Enlightened

There’s no hope for humanity
A half-wit would think otherwise.
Collective Christianity
With its many brethren allies
Have failed its purpose for Christ’s sake!
With their arsenal of prayer beads,
Missals and psalms- they are opaque
Tools employed that never succeeds
In changing the nature of Man:
He is still greedy and hostile
Unchanged since first set foot on land
They’re members of this rank and file:
A congregate hypocrisy
Only the enlightened can see.
 
Albert Ahearn

Ersatz peace

Prime Minister Netanyahu
Present Knesset, Likud Jew
Said Jews have duel capitals:
Jerusalem with armed control
And the city of Tel Aviv.
Who is this ruler called “Bibi”
Who rejects the peace summit talks?
With his constant thwarting and balks
And a recent turn of events
By slating sixteen settlements
On the Palestinians land.
Too long has he the upper hand:
A status quo that rules the day
Not sanctioned by the USA.
Will there be a Palestine state
In this conquered real estate?
The chances are now nil to slim
Due to Israeli Jews like him.
 
Albert Ahearn
   
 

   
   
 

  204.     

Exploited Genius

Once upon a time ago
Lived a man named Vincent Van Gogh.
His style of painting vexed a few
With importunities anew:
His long broad strokes and use of light
Bright yellows, mauve were his delight
Blues and oranges caught the eye
Contrasting when placed side by side
For all the beauty he expressed
It left him poor and dispossessed.
Life seems to fault the advent man
It’s been that way since time began.
Deceased his work has now become
Treasures in Louvre museum.
 
Albert Ahearn
