departure…

departure

welcome
to
the california camel
transportation authority
a program designed
to assure your safe passage
from the outer deserts
of orange
and
riverside counties
into the oasis
of brentwood
which
by the way
has the only
desalinization plant
outside of san diego
and
the arctic regions
of san francisco
our program
has been conceived
with the same thoughtless
environmental considerations
that have produced
the need
for this new state service
please recall
as you leave
your virtual paradise
that you should bring along
a portion
of your monthly water ration
since
the ever-present dust storms
may slow the caravan
also
recall
that this is
nonsmoking trip
we would
not
want to endanger
your health

  1. I think these issues are wearing us out as much as they are wearing out this beautiful Earth of ours. So saps the energy to be constantly looking at the ways to bring attention and make change. But we can’t stop. Poem on, Charlie.
