Ferlinghetti Memorial Supplement ~ Dragon’s Teeth

Dragon’s Teeth

Narrated by Tony Dawson


Dragon’s Teeth

A headless man is running

down the street

He is carrying his head

 in his hands

A woman runs after him

She has his heart

in her hands

And the drones keep coming

And those people keep running

down the dirt streets

Not the same two people

but thousands of others & brothers

All running from the drones

Sowing pure hate

and for every drone that zeroes in

on those running people

up springs a thousand Bin Ladens

a thousand new terrorists

Like dragon’s teeth sown

From which armed warriors spring up

Crying for blood & revenge
