Sure the B’s are Free



  they overfly & pee on me


    they drop B bombs on me


      they spout winged philosophy on me


       they fan me with wee wings


         they gossip ‘bout dead loved-ones


          they sup-up polluted air so fair


            they spawn 1002 schmaltzy movies


              they inspire saintly Brit writers to spout quotable things


                they collide with jetliner


                  causing them to crash land on me


                    i B-fly die


                      & dream


                        after death











John is a member of the Carnegie FireWriters group. On September 29th, he participated in a public reading of his work at the Carnegie Community Centre as part of Vancouver's annual Word on the Street literary festival.
