Diamond Head Crater Corked Up On Oahu - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

thrusting out into beautiful vibrant blue
dark blue or blue green turquoise waters
Diamond Head is a tuff cone interior greens

layered brownish volcanic ash layer sides
vegetation greens surrounding cone bases
blue greens in depths sea white tuffs rocks

Mark Richard Nichols said
"Something I didn't know about
Diamond Head crater on Oahu.

There's someone up there
in charge of keeping the cork in."
Machiavellian plot hidden bubbles corked?

Terry Revis replied
"I say make it another golf course
for no one but the wealthy
and then 'uncork' the mofo."

Terence Craddock suggested
"why wait most deserve to view a live crater;
then perhaps a little push, for the gross rich
who enslaved first to third world workers?

like champagne or wine one day someone
will pop a cork to drink grapes of wrath
scientists are always poking into wasp nets"

Diamond Head crater on Oahu
interior and adjacent exterior areas
were once home to Fort Ruger

crater's closed to public areas serves
as a platform for still in use antennas
officially used by the U.S. government

a National Guard facility and Hawaii State
Civil Defense; remain perched; in the crater
an FAA air traffic control center moved out

so who is keeping the cork in why?
Diamond Head inactive for 150,000 years
vented tunel systems for what purposes?
