Best Poem of Richard Jarboe

Everybody Is Getting Out Of Town

Population, getting out of town,
Population, got their running shoes,
Population, wondering which road to choose,
Everybody's getting out of town.

They all want to leave; they would if they could,
But right now the road's no good,
If you're not crying, you might as well laugh,
While you're trying to get out of town.

Power plant, glowing in the dark,
Nobody sure, what set the spark,
They say the island is sinking fast,
Everybody's getting out of town.

Population, looking for a sign,
Whose fault is it, living on the fault line? ...

Miranda Rights?

You have a right to remain stupid,
Anything you say will diffuse in a court of flaw.

If you cannot afford a liar,
One will be disappointed.

Do you understand these re-writes,
As they have been read to you?

[Hata Bildir]
