Moment Of Silence

Moment Of Silence

(during the 10th  memorial anniversary of 9/11)

 

Be silent brain,

Be silent brain,

Be silent brain!

With the best intentions

Will wants stillness.

Still, I see the shifting bodies

In the crowd.

Obama, Bush, their wives

Chins bowed,

We believe them,

Trust their focus.

All sincere, each one sincere,

Desirous, all of us

Of peace outside and in;

But, there’s the brain,

That noisy brain, the stumbling block

Smacking the will from wall to wall.

Shut up, dear mechanism,

And obey me.
