             DRAGON'S TEETH.
             Lawrence Ferlinghetti .
             A headless man was running.
             down the street.
             He was carrying his head.
             in his hands.
             A woman ran after him.
             She had his heart.
             in her hands.
             The bombs kept falling.
             sowing hate.
             And they kept running.
             down the streets.
             Not the same two people.
             but thousands of others & brothers.
             All running.
             from the bombs that kept falling.
             sowing pure hate.
             For every bomb that dropped.
             up sprang a thousand Bin Ladens.
             A thousand new terrorists.
             Like dragon's teeth sown.
             From which soldiers sprang up.
             Each waving a different flag.
             As the smart bombs sowing hate.
             Kept falling and falling and falling.
