Blood traps are real but the one next door stays hidden…

Only Bread, Only light

It was the year of Reagan’s Star Wars
People in Helsinki talked about defending the mind
Though few agreed what it meant

Ruinous spoken jigsaws
Skyscrapers in haste on every continent
More places for the poor to envy

A friend told me
He wished to have a good
Unpolitical cry

In the words of Omar Khayamm:
As far as you can avoid it,
Do not give grief to anyone
