POEM: "Your Photograph"

Your Photograph

ah that's
easy what
you’ve got there
is a camel 
a picture of
a castration
awful cries
now cut off
the male joins
forever not
a sex but a
dumb community
of burden
now cut off
or else it’s
(one version)
a simple melée 
of camels
like Les says
brutal policy
like inferior art
knows whose
fault it all is
slow diversion
local motorcade
now cut off
the ambassador’s
the tactics
the policies
all a bit too
bloody slow
