Sonnet 11

and when the law comes down you gotta move
fractal practical banana split
in paris see the louvre
of einstein understand it
as with floor polish buy the set
or for security otis redding
soul in a debt
sleeping on bedding
house a home to rise a shine
the song to sing the rainbow’s arc
your life on the line
the future glow dark
you wake
today to take

    and when the law comes down to move
    practical fractal banana split
    in paris the louvre
    by einstein understand it
    as for floor polish buy the set
    or security otis redding
    a soul thy debt
    sleeping in bedding
    house to home a rise to shine
    that song to sing the rainbow’s arc
    the life on the line
    the future dark
    you wake
    today to take

    I was just going to comment here Thom that I really like the 2nd line in this poem and I just realized that it is one of the changes you are making. Now I am seeing the many changes. What a demonstration of the impact of words. Both poems are fantastic.
