Suppositions

A Poem by Einstein Noodle
"

didn't do much reworking of this..so very interested in any suggestions :)

"
Squirrels scurry about
Grey and brown and black
Gathering and hiding away
truth

half masticated leaves and tomatoes
spewing from ruminating cows 

kicking over flat warm rocks 
speculations explode like iridescent 
Bouncing Betty or
dung beetles

news of such things a wound running
blood and detritus
mouths unable to sustain honesty
 dribble
                    drip
                         dribble
down protocol bibs
spoiled children in high chairs.

Could it be that 'the superiors' choreograph, edit and drip-feed us, little snippets of what 'they' not us, wish to hear? One for the conspiracy theorists to peruse, and are we really all mere pawns in their game of chess?

A very profound, thought provoking and subjective poem, sublime metaphor thought out, bravo E.

we are so much more like animals than we think...love the allusion to the cows...my favorite animals, at the time and since my childhood days in Vermont...

perfect, E...don't change a thing...the best poems just come out as they are. that is how Frank O'Hara wrote...and it worked for him...it just works in general.

Really been wanting to get some gruesome, gory insect/animal references in my writing lately... This scratches that itch, and then some... Better than I have been able to do, that is for sure... My mind does NOT do creepy crawly, haha... Filthily penned...

First of all and apropos of nothing; e have Red squirrels here. Including my garden character who is called Cyril with a blond tail.
Now, the media, in these days of instant news is out to get it out there first. No matter whether it is accurate or not. It is interesting to look at the news from various countries and compare. What is important nowadays. 280 people killed in Somalia yesterday seems not to be.
From the squirrel to the baby, superb use of metaphor here. An excellent piece.

Interesting how the press people have been visualized as squirrels, stowing and stashing away tidbits and half-truths, sensationalizing, proselytizing their way through every mess every disaster. The portrayal is perfect. They are no good, mischievous squirrels.

Wow a conundrum of sorts Einstein where on one hand it didn't matter if you were black or white, s**t happens and the world must deal with it! And then there were those not giving a toss sitting in their high chairs.

It's not meant to hear or know it all. It's not good for the human mind. I like this piece and thanks for sharing.

Do we ever really hear ALL the news...all the facts and all the ins and outs? I don't think so. We hear commentary and it is, at best, slanted. Loved the metaphor of dribble on bibs....exactly! Too many childish pranks in our politics...far too many. E, this rocks. Lydi**
