marlene mountain
one-line haiku sequence
october 1985


pissed off poems and cross words

i've got mine

200 years for a $ trillion debt 6 years to double it
seems like enough to go around

'we've managed to get the poor off our minds'
ketchup is food have a nice day

34 million americans in poverty 1 1/2 million starving
attempts to lower the rda nutrition standard

123 countries violate human rights
123 124

balanced budget by 1991 oh sure
'tough choices' uh oh

'god intended the great to be great the little to be little'
not too tough

Women and Language 10:1 1986
