Victory over Forgiveness
Wryly do ingrates find direct current deadlier in its poles shocking
In polite orbs verbs shouldn't be confused like one near to flocking
In a million ten years and door-to-door hustlers'll still be knocking
Stuff is clumping rearwards on Sunday and tuna fish ain't walking
This pock-ravaged skin warns that cows and chickens are pocking
York's pockish faces push the proxy servile into mawkish mocking

Poet's Notes about The Poem
'Victory over Forgiveness'
'Deliberate attempts have been made to allow (Aboriginal) infants under my care to die. The real authorities don't want these infants to live. My final conclusion after forty years or more in this busi-ness (medical) is that the unofficial policy of the World Health Organization is one of murder and genocide.'
— Archie Kalokerinos, M.D., 'Every Second Child'
'When W.H.O. officials discovered a polio outbreak in Nigeria was sparked by the polio vaccine itself they assumed it would be easier to stop than the natural 'wild' virus. They were wrong. The virus in the vaccine can mutate into a deadlier version that ignites new out-breaks.' — “Polio Surge in Nigeria after Vaccine Virus Mutates, ” Associated Press,8/14/09
