a camel through
the eye of a needle

when pressed hard 
against the nostrils

one is assailed by 
the sweat of child labour

he is just eleven and not in school 
when other children are in school

the poor child labours away at the sweatshops 
under the watchful eyes of...Read More

Wake Up Humanity
We’re complaining about life and throwing food away,
But there’s nearly 800 million people going hungry in the world today.

Immersions of melting soot
Reagents are called and are few
Engaging sweatshops of New

The fire raged in intense anger
A blue ignited inside...Read More

yet from the east caravans again fill its
pharaonic marble and glass temples. Monolith

malls rise its clefts; eco-wilderness morph
into multiplex cinemas; mini golf
and carparks - the 20th Century gold fields.

the smell
The smell
What is that smell? Can’t you tell,
It’s just some tory twit,

Use me as an example.
Floating on sea's of vanishing waters ,
soaked up by those who care not for the amount of pollution tossed in to it.

Use me as a sponge soaking up oil polluted lake's,

Our Smoldering Factory Town
Our Smoldering Factory Town
free trade, a brick around
It’s gurgling, swollen neck. Surrounding
gray quiet smolder, evokes, 
Once thriving factory smoke
A Crumbling horoscope
once paid it's worker's, soaked
in quiet desperation.
We are it's rusty antiques
sinking ships on outsourced seas
a swollen, bailout casualty
a fallow field,...Read More
