Field Commander Zed

Based on L. Cohen’s Field Commander Cohen
Dedicated to my mentor and friend Z.M.  

Field Commander Zed, 
he was a poet not a spy, 
firm believer
that his duty
was to fill the void with beauty
of his metaphors and rhyme,
before
it is infiltrated
with uncertainty and hatred
of hard-headed men,
even once,
when all persuasion failed 
to silence 
pointless violence,
he used a plastic bucket,
then he came back again 
to what is nothing special
such as
marking texts
fixing lines
clearing punctuation mines
-in other words
all boredom advertised as
poetry.
