The farm – TB

2 Mar

South America’s taken a bite out of Africa.
North America is about to charge into Europe.
Russia’s wagging its tail like a fat, angry cat.
There’s too much going on for its liking.
India’s buzzing with a hive of activity
and China’s the swarm coming out of it rapidly.
Indonesia, the Philippines and Japan are all in a slug race.
Their mission is to get to the lettuce leaf, which is Australia.
The South Pole’s a giant goat lying on its back,
Waiting for someone to tickle it.

    Smart poem. Title reminds me of George Orwell, lines remind me of War, the tabletop game. Best.

    I spent many yeas in the same history class staring at the map of the world behind my teacher’s head (not really paying much attention to his monotone) and seeing the shapes you have described. Scandinavia looks to me like a wolf sitting at heel and drooling over Europe.

      I see what you mean with Scandinavia

    Wonderful how you can use the map as a Rorschach test… and living as that wolf in Scandinavia maybe there is a hint of truth 🙂
