Orchards In Translation

The mysterious Department of Fire Protection:
Is it protection for fire? From fire? By fire?
As for that eerie inaudible sound escaping from

ocean waves, the nineteenth century, and golf courses:
Just because it has a hum, does not make it human.
And let us not lead humans to hunt for the Earth.

(Prayer proposed by a usually serene avocado.)
So, why does the Earth hum?
Because it knows not the wording.

Nobody could have predicted that
We can still forget why we fell in love.

Sunday Memoranda Rally

With the flick of pen
Actions, promises and orders,
Broke years of work

We do not need new laws,
We need the people
To kick start and rally a new campaign

Call the authorities to say: ‘Trump,
We are treating the activities as
A terror attack’

Tigers and Terror

The Queen blasted a million three-metre-high tigers,
an attack that horrified the zoo.
An act of possible terrorism.

The President could not afford another wife,
a gravely wounded man.
Canada's prime minister is very happy.

A suggestion that Trump began ripping a child apart
erupted Sunday night.
More than 70 people joined him.

Sapphire Ezekiel 10

The possibility of grand history
Not yet planned to reach the TWO stairgates
Easily scaled shut on February 26

A 68 minute assumption to mark the common family
An extra eight for the day she reigned
As seen in their windows out of any car

Escape from 9:00 pm ET to 10:13, return for the kids
The 21-month-old Queen in the high chair
Revealed midseason to a pail of garbage

Countless Death Talks

The Foreign Secretary is locked in the moon
To ensure dual citizenship,
From that faked American space agency.

Trump’s teasing travel ban,
The American administration ordered into an enclosure.
A televised landing faked in a zoo.

Moon missions not affected by tigers as they fed,
Ripping neck off Trump’s wife,
An end to intense scrutiny.

Pleased Yet Awful

The first half was comfortable
rested like a zoo animal, feeding.
Careers suspended in a green limbo

Written instructions received
the new goal is a real killer
Wednesday's words ripping heads apart

In the end, adrift of safety,
the jaws of work lay him motionless
dragged further into man's own lair.

Making a Man

Misogyny is a Kingdom.
The vice like vulgarity calls
For a debate of an appearance.

A man, a wife, a child.
Government responds to season.
The captive prevented from making a debate.

The state has confirmed rumours,
But there is no set kingdom,
And the man died from a long wait.

Immigration Reveals Monsters

When barred for days
And the clampdown wrong,
A broken refugee protests.

A burial ground for lies exposed,
A Deadman’s buried floating on
The island of erosion

The blade of crime,
A knife has risen.
England, Freedom?

Unusual Missing Suspect

Twenty-five, drifting in water
Spotted by the military

Writing on twitter: Take Care.

The Twitching Habitat

On the verge of France and California
Causing their strategy to collapse,
A tricky mechanism, a hungry bacteria.

Starlings are forced to inhibit the body
Scavenging for their habitats and lose,
Some of them have been found to go hungry.

No doubt, the birdwatch will be on
When we change our behaviour to conserve energy,
For the next stomach-distressing extinction.

-- Adriana Ciontea

Twitching to start as annual Birdwatch survey gets under way
Bacteria's sneaky way to spread by getting you to eat more

The Drunk Universe

As a self-described "old drunk”
foiled by the confoundingly high pressures to create it
It’s a little surreal

I really don't see the point of getting angry
but surreal is what Balls is all about these days
It starts with the universe's big bang-for-your-buck

I do see the point of getting drunk
That would be brilliant, don’t you think?
It says they’ve cracked one more

-- Susanne S. Aase

That Consuming Posture

In the town's map, one dozen windmills stop.
If potent accusations of the principle can breathe,
it's the air that has beaten him back.

The younger generation seem interested.
See the genes rotate, like suspicious windmills.
They assume the mice questioning

by using lasers to launch an albatross;
but is that real hunting?
(See full experiment and video in the journal Fear.)
