Kudzu Festival

a little satire comparing kudzu to racism

It’s called the front porch vine. It grows over everything and makes for comfort with its shade. Easy to propagate, just get the right tools. The roots are huge and spreading, deep-rooted and hard to pull out. Pretty much were rid of it, ten years may pass, and here it is again.

There are lots of uses for it. It can bring folks together like a festival, a klan or even a government. Folks use it for their own advantage and many like to profit from it. It can get stirred up into a drink. It is warm and feels good. Takes the craving off of everything else when drinking kudzu tea.

The Road

rains came

sometimes only a drizzle

or a pouring out all day

slope of the terrain meant it would not pool

rather it made a tiny groove in the crushed gravel

 

winter came and it rained and rained

groove went deeper into the road until it was a rut

Now tires might get stuck

a flash flood would wash it away

that would keep the people out

the road needs maintenance

The Road

From Bicycles to Airplane

Wright brother Orville

At the top of the hill trying to fly

From a little toy that built a dream

Building bikes

Need balance

Don’t fall off

Leave the ground

Let’s stay up not go down

Watch the turkey vulture fly

Wilbur went day dreaming

Built a lite glider

Need for a windy place

Privacy

Kitty Hawk

Wrote a letter

Answer yes we can

Wide open space

Lots of sand

Wind like the Sahara desert

Little boy Tommy Tate

First to fly

Two minute flight for Wilbur

Went home to Ohio

Built a wind tunnel

1902 off the sand dune

a thousand times

Roll

Pitch

Yaw

These three created flight

From Bicycles to Airplane
