Of freedom fighters there are but few,

Who have the kind of daring do.

That scale the globe in half a year

Ripping up turf of yester years

Politics, economics, and bad debt gone

Better than a megaton bomb

Ecuador has risen fast it’s

Economics now will last

The test, yes test of things to come

Julian Assange for them has won.

No ‘Truth’ could last if it were ‘lie’

No ‘lie’ could last the sound of time.

The tolling bell, let us not hear,

For that dear love who loved us dear.

The Woodpecker Came ( a poem )

The Woodpecker Came

The woodpecker came,

Pecking at the lawn,

The grass was dry,

It’s yellowed stems,

Uninviting.

But, the pecking at the ground,

To find a seed or grub.

The ground was hard.

I saw that his feathers

Were dull with dirt,

From the air or journey,

That he had aged maybe.
