I spared the ground floor

They spared the ground floor; wide open to winds and nature, bare of walls, doors, and windows.

They spread on the dirt floor a carpet of dry leaves, dry nuts, hay, straw, and chaff; a couple of buckets of fresh water in corners.

The neighboring animals have the tendency to pray a lot in a shelter; most of their prayers are for the kindred spirits.

Animal have acute subconscious:

A caged canary sings for the hunter to remind him of its hopeless

And its unnatural conditions to be ended.

The first line in a poem should be the gift of grace.

The remaining lines a proof of skills: only skills are materially rewarded.

Details, describing living details are the art of writers;

Only when the writer feels the approach of death should he focus on distilling the honey of wisdom.

A liked poem has already conveyed an act of resistance for capturing human dignity.

Note: I read an article on wordpress.com imagining  the roles were reversed between the Palestinians in Gaza and the Zionist State.

Then, how the world community and the US and the European Union would respond to a 3-month siege of famine and air strikes if the Palestinians of Gaza had cut off Israel from the world; in what terms the war would be labeled (genocide, war crime, holocaust…) and how quickly the US would have maneuvered to end the war?

The death toll of the Palestinians in Gaza, after 13 days of Israel savage genocide, climbed to 1,500 (half of them babies) and over 4,000 seriously injured.

This genocide is mainly targeting the next generations of Palestinians and the Bush Junior excuses are beside the point.

Freedom to where?

Many souls are fleeing;

From where and to where? What for?

Many souls are immigrating to die

In open seas, in closed containers, and on barbed wires.

Fleeing to freedom from hunger, oppression, ignorance, or limiting opportunities?

Time to ponder what kind of freedom is it you are expecting:

Is it freedom to get chained to chain operations?

Is it freedom toward sweat prison shops?

Is it freedom to live third class human?

Denied human rights and human dignity?

Before seeking freedom you have got to ask: “To where?”

There is no freedom in Africa to return to.

There is no freedom in Israel to go to.

There is no freedom in Europe or the USA to hope for:

Video cameras are watching you in the privacy of toilets.

Blacks in the US have been chanting “freedom” for ever;

Freedom from slavery to emancipation;

Are they still chanting for freedom?

Freedom to go back to Africa?

Freedom to bunk in squatters?

Freedom to live in hurricane ravaged States?

Whites have been fleeing to freedom.

Freedom to learn surviving in the wild;

Freedom to sleep under green canopies of old trees: decapitated;

Freedom to drinking from clean and clear springs: contaminated;

Freedom to breathing fresh air: suffocated, even on Mount Everest.

The rich are after a different sort of freedom: prepping;

Prepping storing food, fresh water,

Spare parts for older cars, and tools

In anticipation of the next calamity;

Learning to barter unused modern consumer products

To substitutes that can be repaired and maintained at home

Waiting for

The next dirty terrorist bomb,

The coming of Armageddon.

Developed Nations have been prepping too;

Hoarding oil, rare minerals, and copper;

Gardening fresh produces in backyard continents: Africa.

People are fleeing a merciless God

Petrified in desert laws

Many centuries ago.

People are fleeing a merciless God: Green money;

Wiping out original Indians for free lands;

Shipping in slaves,

First, of the white kind slaves

And then of black colored: more accommodating;

For free labor to cultivate the freed lands;

Then contracting out products and services

For cheaper slaves: Global slavery.

Freedom to live where?

To live in megalopolis City-States democracies

Denied political rights and political identity?

To live at night and sleep at days

Fearing two feet predators?

There is no Egypt to flee from to any kind of freedom.

There is no freedom in Afghanistan to grow opium;

There is no freedom in the wild to grow marijuana.

There is no freedom within you for shelter:

You have got to act normal: schizophrenic of what comes handy.

There is no homeland to visit:

God hates freedom of opinion.

God loves equality in miseries, ignorance, and servitude.
