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? ...

Layers

Above are layers of atmosphere, stratosphere,
Below layers of topsoil, rock and clay,
People in layers rich and poor,
Cities built on top of cities, on top of cities.

Layers of thought conscious to unconscious,
Felt in layers asleep to awake,
In a dream of a dream, of a dream in a dream,
In a dream of a dream, in a dream.
