Best Poem of Dave SmithWhite

A Song Of Gilgamesh

Gods in the distance, gods from beyond.
Gods of the chosen, the meek and the fond.
The gods of our fathers that keep us in bonds;
All gods are welcome in old Babylon!

A patient hand, no modern scrawl,
But raised in stone by pick and awl.
The stele stands, proud and tall,
And tells my history.

Gods swathed in garlands of sweet perfumed fronds.
Hurling ball lightning or just waving wands.
The earth as our mother must always respond,
All gods are welcome in old Babylon!

An ancient land has seen it all.
Emergent man, building ...

The Ballad Of Mr Sloth

He goes a little crazy in the morning.
He goes a little odd by crack of dawn.
A restless spirit, waking up and yawning,
With a body-clock protesting, gaunt and worn.

'My brain's a twee bit softer before breakfast.
My mind's a little addled and confused.
And then I read the bloggers, and the papers,
And all the swill that passes for the news.

[Hata Bildir]
