bGoing Green Then What

All of the exercises in going green-
shingling the roof with solar cells, turning down the thermostat,
installing an economy flush toilet, walk and don't ride, replace
the incandescents, plant a tree every week, a windmill to generate
electricity, muling the grass and trash to ash, fertilize the garden
with ash, rows upon rows of indoor house plants-
my contribution to the world-and we're breathing better
Yet when should we get around-take the time-to address
Barry A. Lanier



bGuns, Knives, & Talkin' Trash

A cell now a phone
So small and so thin
Back then behind bars
Looking out from within

A 'hoe' once a tool
Not some long lost soul
No wandering for strangers
To fill in a hole

Now guns & knives
And talkin' the trash
Back then bare knuckles
Ten fingers kickin' ass

Then 'weed' was a grass
And a 'joint' was a place
A 'toke' never heard of
Now such a disgrace

The rings went on the fingers
Not the navels and nose
Where else might they go
Only heaven seems to know

Maybe I'm an ole' woodcutter
Out of place and alone
Maybe time to pack up
And just go home
Barry A. Lanier



bHaiku 747

Quicksand of my life
Neither sucking up or down
Only go side to side
Barry A. Lanier



bHaiku Or Not

Barefoot in the mud
Mother Earth struggling to fight
In dryer times victory
Barry A. Lanier
