The Geography Lesson

Mountains are high because they

Are ambitious and they work hard

To get up in the world

They believe in the theory

Of the molten force of plasticity

And if they are angered they can erupt

With explosive force rearranging

The territory they occupy

Forcing the crust of the lowlands

Into a strategy of resist and contain

Creating at times a climate of chaos

That cripples nations

And makes the priorities of governments

As ambiguous as the territorial boundaries

Of a flock of hungry ravens
