RIC S. BASTASA


Those who called them apes in the jungle


those who scramble for food
and steal and
(as you term it) have behaved
like apes
in that human struggle to be alive
are what you see on
TV

You have judged them wrongly

Go there, in the Land of the Rubble
walk, take your time, smell the stink,
taste the mud,
do not eat for three days,
no food, no water,
no friends, no TV,
no cellphone,
no roof,

beg for a transportation facility
then come back home

Tell me then
all about it. Let us hear
if your anger will be the same
Let us see, if your judgment is
correct.
