OUTSIDE US/ MUCH MADNESS
Inside a soup of commingled emotions
It is like love"Well-will i stay or will i go?"
And the dominatrix husband and the beaten wife
Aged insecure with no safety net.Rich happy to squat as is
For Palaces need no rent ,and bed tax for impoverished.
Ambivalence.Are we in love with Europa?Will we stay with her?
She has problems.We may lose our Independence..Unresolved this relationship..
What Benefit to pretend the 21st Century communications links never happened?
Will we be French riots or Belgium terrorized?What if love fails?
Divorced,we would still share the airspace ,and waterways are tiny in a shrinking world.
Before a decision is made,a decision is made emotionally.Do you love?or do you fear/ her?
Europa wants to know her status.You left before.And that meant wars.Two of them.
If you go back to isolation,who knows what will happen?Certainly no pop star nor politician..
As for poets?W H Auden supposed"Poetry ..makes nothing happen.."
