in this world

where something means everything

and everything means nothing

where elephants and donkies

fight for chairs

dividing a nation

where the bald eagle

spreads talons across the earth

but he is not alone

his cousin the black eagle

flies at his side

while the bear

the rooster

and the fox

take the ground

in this place death is

in the form of an acronym

SARS, AIDS, CIA

is this the scariest thing of all

in this place people shoot into crowded streets

in a foreign land

in that place

people start killing each other

over shiny rocks

and head shape

but still more shocking

are the men in sleek black robes

driving fancy metal wagons

who stand unfazed at the news

this is a place where

nothing means anything

but anything means something

and something means everything
