Poetry – Gnat’s Pee

Gnat’s Pee

A gnat pissing in a hurricane

Would make no difference to the pouring rain

Like a stray thought through a random brain

A pinprick in a searing pain

Or a millionaire’s profit to a nation’s gain

Yet a poor man’s lack of grain is the whole world’s eternal shame

Opher 31.1.02

I wrote this in response to the glaring inequality that is producing trillionaires while some people do not have a grain of rice to feed their children.

There can be no excuse.

  1. I like your style Opher: punchy, succinct, and poignant.

    The world needs to get its political priorities straight. Human centred policies that redistribute wealth, diminish poverty, offer equality, protect the environment, and inspire hope where there is darkness and suffering.

    Enjoy the snow and slush! Take care,


I'd like to hear from you...
