Another slam poem – one I keep forgetting to put up. After writing things like this I probably shouldn’t be allowed to write any poetry, at all, ever ever.
You are my Fukushima Nuclear Plant.
When I saw you, my heart beat
Like an earthquake. I wanted
To get to know you better. Because you’re beautiful.
I gave you a wave,
Just a wave, a little one,
All I wanted
Was to say ‘Hi!’
And there you go, exploding,
Our relationship isn’t built on love any more.
It’s built on nuclear fusion.
And you can’t make a home from nuclear fusion.
You can’t raise kids with nuclear fusion.
They’d die. It’d be awful.
So you exploded, not even once,
You know, you made your point the first time,
You didn’t have to waste all that flammable gas
Just to tell me you hate me.
I can see you hate me.
I’m just trying to get to know you better.
And you know what?
I’m going to start crying now,
And if my tears carry your noxious polluting waste
All the way across Japan, killing thousands of homeless
Well, that’s your fucking fault, isn’t it?
I didn’t want for this happen!
I didn’t want for any of it to happen!
All I did was give you a little wave!
