FOR SOME OTHER TIME
Boghos L. Artinian
Like dogs burying bones for some other time
They bury the deadly wastes in brittle lime.
Like vile janissaries dumping into the dark waves
Of the Dardanelles, weighted men of another race
They dump barrels of toxin into the ocean
Assuming nothing will surface with due caution.
They pretend to embrace nature yet they piss
Into rivers chemicals that steam and hiss.
Their gases often leak into the population
With occasional wholesale asphyxiation.
Their meltdowns are hushed until the radiation
Creeps and is detected in some other nation,
Yet we tend to dip our heads into the sand
Preferring not to see, hear or understand!
