The New Pope’s Name

I don’t think the Vatican will ever by the same.

Pope Dominic? Pope Benedict? Much too tame!

A Pope named Ignatius

Would be too rapacious.

So, we get a Jesuit with a Franciscan name.

Alone with a Drone

Whether you’re a foreigner, a terrorist, or home grown,

Whether you’re innocent, but living in the targeted zone,

Whether you’re a minaret or a steeple,

Or just a household full of people,

You’re only collateral damage for Obama’s drone.

Hanford Radioactive Leaks

Radioactivity is leaking on the Hanford Reservation.

Plutonium waste is contaminating our nation.

Because our government is so cheap,

Into our drinking water it will seep;

So, bombs meant for others become our self-elimination.

Space Rocks

“Space Rocks”

(Russian asteroid of February 2013)

It came by in the sky and spread over blocks,

That shooting carrier of sound barrier shocks.

The song of an extraterrestrial choir

Began with, “This girl’s on fire!”

So every dude must conclude, Space Rocks!
