To avoid further confusion the word war needs to be replaced with the word tradewar. This word can then be refined, oil tradewar, heroin tradewar, slave tradewar, or in another way, tradewar justified by religious lies, tradewar justified by nationalist lies. 

This clearer language will allow young men to make informed decisions about fighting. If they choose to fight they will be able to negotiate a suitable reward for the risk they take, possibly a share of the value of the trade concerned. 

Or they might choose to not fight, if they understand what tradewar really is.

And Mexico

And Mexico
Can be anywhere,
And instead of being rich
And pretending we are poor,
We can be poor,
And pretend we are rich, 
And pretending to be poor,
And Mexico
Can be anywhere.

Back Lane Boarding House

The sort of people who reside in this boarding house know to look for the NO VACANCY sign in the back lane, not the front door. When there are rooms available the sign is covered by two old pillowcases. I always imagine these pillowcases are slipped over the last two pillows on the last bed when the joint is full, and the sign revealed.

End Of Summer

Brief shower of rain 
Steam off Summer warm asphalt
Comforting, like death
