The Dragonfly Blues

Landing on the moon,

Disembarking from a wooden spoon,

Flying on kitchen utensils,

Is not as fast as sharpened pencils,

Stepping off to lunar land,

Or drinking down the Grand,

It’s all alien to me,

Polystyrene ships in a heavy sea,

Feathers, Little Egret, so white and pure,

High grade coke, once a rich mans lure,

Make no comparisons, blinkered fool,

Progressions hand ,caresses a building tool,

Treeless roots beneath our feet,

A thousand under every street,

A dragonfly darting,

Or an old man farting,

Methane and the permafrost,

Accountants add the cost,

Broken hearts and broken lives,

Naked forests , Amazon fires,

Only what’s chosen , makes the news,

I’ve got a case of the Dragonfly blues.

    1. Thank you – you have just started me on a journey of learning about Leonard Cohen. His, is a name that is familiar to my ears but not to what’s between them! šŸ™‚
