Maybe The Maggots

Heads full of dreams
too many heads
only one dream

in the world now poised between
Hell and Hollywood
genocide and overpopulation

words and politics and war
there is no memory
only expectation


for what begins with power ends in mysticism.

We are the devil of our creation
and only the maggots
can grant us salvation.
 
Anthony Weir

Memorial Hymn To Diogenes Of Sinope

Dogs are our souls.
Consciousness is mere complexity
of joined-up holes -
a rotten shroud
of overweening cruelty.
Dogs are our beaten,
starving, tortured,
pampered souls.
 
Anthony Weir

Morceau De Napolιon ('Who Dares To Speak Of '98? '

Napoleon had very tiny private
parts, hacked off, apparently, post mortem,
sold to a Canadian for £18,000
a little while ago.
His mistresses were just for show.

Had the Irish
(whom he failed to liberate)
known this, they might
have placed their trust in -
pointed in dance
around -
their 1800 phallic stones
and not upon the impotent and upstart
Emperor of France.
 
Anthony Weir

People Called Sioux - A Holocaust Poem

Was Shel Silverstein just being crass
in the lyric sung by Johnny Cash -
or was he being amazingly, subversively,
unamericanly ironic?
The boy was not a boy, but a lot of men and women
their name not Sue but Sioux,
and ethnically cleansed by some of American Democracy's
many land-grabs and pogroms
carried out by racist rednecks
and Ulstermen with bombs.

(many more than 9 million aboriginal Americans were killed in every possible way by Europeans)
