Yule and Monte Carlo
by Oskar Hansen
While I sit and watch circus Monte Carlo
and get annoyed by the undignified use of wild animals,
perhaps except horses, they are beautiful and dumb and get oats to eat after
There is no peace for the Palestinians and their struggle to win
back their country and bullets sing through the night.
I watched a bland concert where Jerusalem was sung by three tenors
but having heard Placido Domingo, they didn`t measure up.
Then the ads came on in Portugal they last forever, I fall asleep
and didn`t see the clowns.
