Thinking in the early hours...

I've been awake since 3 am.
Moby speaks of Woody Allen, who,
regardless of how much he's achieved
'just keeps working'.
Extreme ways are back again!
But, when did they ever leave?
A suicide bomber, not happy to just take himself
(in the hope that he will receive
'young full-breasted maidens of equal age')
after his own death
kills 40 and injures many more.
The forgotten woman
who 'knew too much' -
an inconvenient witness,
has died and may be buried alongside her beloved Tito,
whilst another will be placed in a secret grave
so as not to solicit the worship of
Nazi sympathisers.
Banks, who will not admit to 'wrong doing' 
(did we really expect them to?)
keep up a front.
Homes are abandoned
and the fires continue.

Julie Clarke (2013)
