so pure

Roi Kwabena

whenever i stop to take notice
parody is easy to relish

another late train departs as i
remain fastened to this bench on platform 6
wondering if the spiralling price of oil will affect
living standards for the poor in my oil rich isles

relatives complain they are
unable to protect themselves any more
a former prime minister proclaims
time for each man to own a gun
lawyers protest the conditions on remand yard
queen's counsel retained at enormous state
expense for the scoring of political advantage
engineered class conflict incorrectly identified as racial conflict

how pure is bottled pure spring water?
