Dragon’s Teeth

A headless man is running
down the street
He is carrying his head
in his hands
A woman runs after him
She has his heart
in her hands
The bombs keep falling
sowing hate
And they keep running
down the streets
Not the same two people
but thousands of others &
brothers
All running
from the bombs that keep falling
sowing pure hate

And for every bomb that’s
dropped
up spring a thousand Bin Ladens
a thousand new terrorists
Like dragons teeth sown
From which armed warriors
sprang up
Crying for blood

As the smart bombs sowing
hate
Keep falling and falling and
falling

– Lawrence Ferlinghetti, 2003
