Ivan Jenson - Two Poems

Going Green

You have shared
very profound insights
into the human condition
and shown yourself
to be an intellect of
the highest order
shedding light
on important
dark issues
while alluding
to some bigger
which could
effect the well being
of generations to come
however, I confess
I have been
unable to fully
your brilliant
due to
a spinach chive
on your front

Spring Cleaning
May I give you
a deconstructive
your post-modern
past tense
which led
to your current
state of unease
and do you mind
if I point you
away from
your newfound fame
in the blame game
where your parents
are at fault
for the sink-hole
you are in
and may I
hit you
the belt
with my tough
and thereby
bring you
to your knees
so that you get down
to scrubbing
the floors of
your subconscious
until everything is
spic and span
and your attitude
changes to “Yes, I can!”
