The Chinese Red Flag and Foul Air


Recommended Posts

The Chinese have raised a red flag

over the island but the taxi cabs


ignored each other weaving through

traffic jams. Crab bucket syndrome?


Grab one for yourself. But don't forget

to bring your crab cracker.


For the health conscious, stay away

from crackers. The gas side effect


is not toll-free. You pay

with isolation the disruption


or violation of ecosystem balance,

by fouling the air with hate speeches.

What with grabs, cabs, crabs, and crackers, your non-things make something light and self-mocking come across bright and fun. How that took me through traffic jams and tolls to ecosystems and hate speeches, I'll never know. But it's fun!
