Question: Poets, easy answers, Comments!?

I once had a home both in Paris and LA
I painted both in green, prettiest sight seen
The houses in LA and Paris green
That was the Green way!.

I was a Gypsy, a moth to the fire drawn
I seldom alighted in either
Each the apple of my eye
I'd overnight in Schweinfurt

I'd take Transport from the DDR on
Train en train to Paris
Charitably transporting patients
We called it DDT for short

Then the Green Revolution came
And we floated a proposition
Swatting mosquitoes with canons,
A film on the water

We had no patience for coddling,
Preserving cherry solutions
Covering over the soil of the past
Green politics the new rageWww@QuestionHome@Com
