Pentapolis [Today's News Poem by Khakjaan Wessington, April 27, 2012]

Pentapolis [Today's News Poem by Khakjaan Wessington, April 27, 2012]
American exhausts the sky;
Exsanguinates the bed, rock, earth;
It collars the exposure, brains
Resistance; and of course the five
Metropolises fencing heart-
land, garrison Midwest, Mideast
Preparing for a holy war—
The Pentagon subsumes the star
Of Satan—at the UN five
Secure all of the other states;
The Pentatuch, the lore of law.

“If not for an odd confluence of events that included a car accident, a small-town festival, a GPS unit that could not spot street closures, and a wrong-way drive down a one-way street, the Norwegian man and his mother would have had an uneventful drive from Los Angeles to Chicago.
Instead, John Kristoffer Larsgard, 33, faces 7 1/2 years in an Arizona prison, largely as a result of some erratic driving that frightened and angered people at the Winslow street festival. Prosecutors said Larsgard turned his car into a weapon, hitting one woman, causing minor injuries and narrowly missing many others.”
