Discontent - Poem by Leonard Dabydeen

Frankly speaking
I must have fallen
into a seismic dream
in a distant period of time
watching tumultuous turmoil
in the rumble of discontent
tidal waves lash
against unwavering shores
and mountains spew fire
like bellowing dragons in China
mount Roraima gone
and the Andes
and Appalachian ridges
regurgitate in molten lava
and the Rockies and Himalayas
melt in torrential slush
winding in fissures
swallowing every peak
every pinnacle
all in a molten mass
in sizzling heat
and then…
the mighty Amazon river roars
at the shivering flora and fauna
as the Pacific and Atlantic
and Indian oceans
immerse all things in a tsunami gulp
leaving my index finger
on the power button
of my twittering remote control
as I pull the clouds
over my eyes
and go to sleep.
