Homage to Kenneth Koch


If I were doing my Laundry I'd wash my dirty Iran
I'd throw in my United States, and pour on the Ivory Soap,
scrub up Africa, put all the birds and elephants back in
the jungle,
I'd wash the Amazon river and clean the oily Carib & Gulf of Mexico,
Rub that smog off the North Pole, wipe up all the pipelines in Alaska,
Rub a dub dub for Rocky Flats and Los Alamos, Flush that sparkly
Cesium out of Love Canal

If only it were this easy! Great job, Allen Ginsberg. Your words are truer and more necessary today, than they were while you were still living. An amazing write.

Koch would be proud. A very creatively profound piece of poetry. Ginsberg comes through again. Very well-deserved Poem Of The Day!
