‘Un reroute the rivers
Let the dammed water be
There’s some people down the way that’s thirsty
Let the liquid spirit free
The people are thirsty
Cause of man’s unnatural hand
Watch what happens when the people catch wind
When the water hits the banks of that hard dry land’
Lyrics from a great song by Gregory Porter.
Steam rising to the skies, falling down like rain,
Onto hard dried deforested land.
one day at a time
a thief in a library
What is a thief doing in a library? Hem is reading a book.
Why is a thief stealing things? Hem has no money.
Why doesn’t hem have money? Hem has no job.
Why doesn’t hem have a job? Hem has no education.
Why isn’t hem at school? Hem has no money.
What is a thief doing in a library?
A haiku about human conditions.
And how taking a little bit of time, asking Why?
