The Post War NightmareThe victorious Allies met as equals in Yalta
They aimed to build a peace as secure as Gibraltar
Yet it was not too long before the people’s great hope
Evaporated like so much cheap soap
While Fascist necks were given a stretch
Seeds were sown, fruit so bitter you’d wretch
When Khrushchev sent tanks into Hungary in 1956
The Brits were busy in the canal, shooting Arabs with sticks
In 68 American bombers caused Viet alarms to ring and ring
While the Warsaw Pact paid a visit to Prague in the spring
Brezhnev took Afghanistan, Reagan took Beirut
Both Powers committed to the old Imperial pursuit
In Africa the loss of Patrice Lumumba
Has caused the deaths of an untold number
And in Angola the victory of the MPLA
Was secured after a bloody three way
And although it took him awhile
Idi Amin managed to feed every Crocodile
Things were hardly better in East Asia
From Korea down South to Malaysia
War was common and mostly fraternal
Such fires there were, it resembled the infernal
what love is not.it was a s l o p p y first kiss where
my drunk lips fumbled against yours.
the dull thwack of my heart,
locked behind curved ribs
cleared my groggy brain,
clouded with lustful premonitions.
it was an e l e c t r i f y i n g first kiss where
you entwined your hands in my hair.
your mouth encompassed mine and
my breath became lost in the steady
of your chest.
it was a s h y first kiss where
i pulled away before you could explore.
your tongue grazed my teeth,
searching for a way past the ivory gates.
i dug my finger into the stubble along your jaw,
my nail lulling your carnal desires.
it was my first kiss with you.
