why would you do that?

 

do that do that

why would you

do that

break a heart

spoil a life

be a new wife

to another

do that do that

why would you 

do that

do that do that

why would you

do that

start a war

kill without regard

forfeit every yard

of ours

do that do that

why would you

do that

do that do that

why would you

do that

pollute the sea

foul the air

breed despair

ferment furore

do that do that

why would you

do that

do that do that

why would you

do that

break a heart

stain a star

maim and mar

no longer sing

do that do that

why would you

do that 

 

 

with my grateful 

acknowledgement 

to the poet 

George Deans 

from whom 

I’ve swiped a line
