Hope you had a happy moon!

Hope you had a happy moon!

the moon is up in heaven
they talk of 9/11
you don’t know what to say
the moon is very bright now
a peaceful ball of light now
a rather dead one anyway.

and everyone remembers
the fire and the embers
a sudden act of war.
the city of the towers
of music and of flowers
and everything a city’s for.

you think of sarajewo
you think of srebrenica
of bagdad and belgrade
you think of senseless carnage
of buildings and of courage
and of some pictures people made.

das mondfest ist erst morgen
heut hat man andre sorgen
das wetter war recht heiss
und viele gingen baden
und kamen nicht zu schaden
die grillen zirpen gar nicht leis.

zum mondfest isst man kuchen
den braucht man nicht zu suchen
den gibt es ueberall
mit ananas und dotter
fast wie bei harry potter
ein fester kalorienschwall.

man steigt auf eine hoehe
dass man ihn besser sehe
man trinkt und singt ein lied
und denkt an seine lieben
im fernen china drueben
an alle die man selten sieht.

they have a wall in china
a wall in palestina
a wall in israel
and many politicians
who work for corporations
and get elected without fail.

the sun is up and shining
we’ve had a little whining
though school has started well.
we’ve had some cakes with poppy
the house looks pretty sloppy
I wish our son could show and tell.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you
    could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
