A Statement


The little lolitas in the streets

The whore in my bed

The porn in the Prime Minister’s book of poems,

The hunkies on the bus,

The boy and girl snuggled up,

The Sociology teacher,

The aspirin for the bump on your head

Arguments for the statement

All of the earth’s surface

Should be paved with concrete

All but a tiny patch to be left

For the Little Prince’s rose.
