if I could give up

one thing you see

it wouldn’t hang

from a big apple tree

*

if I had to stand

with a big lettered sign

it would not be written

in cursive or in rhyme

*

if there were a big group

standing in a crowd

people united

some silent others loud

*

i’m not sure if ships

blockading in the sea

or a broad high fence

barring you from feeding me

*

is it sticks that you bring

or is it rocks

what point are you making

with your useless sling shot?

The prompt for Poet’s United Midweek motif is Boycott.

 I am not sure if a boycott of items or a service really does much.

Will a Cold War (a boycott of sorts) with Russia help my friends in the Ukraine???

Are the boys barring the way for practitioners  (with sticks and slingshots)  into their villages preventing the spread of Ebola?

My signs would say:

“Give Crimea Back”

“Stop the Spread of Ebola – NOW!!!”
