Allowances Can Be Made

A Poem by Donal Mahoney

Monsanto, Dow and Oliver Jones

Oliver Jones, now gray and grizzled, has
cut the Miller’s lawn for years. A Vietnam vet,
a victim of Agent Orange, Oliver’s getting old,
almost as old as the Millers, his friends for years.

Recently he’s left ridges and tufts
in the lawn Mr. Miller’s eyes can’t see
but his wife has mentioned the problem.
After Oliver’s been paid with a good tip,

Mrs. Miller often rolls her wheelchair
over to the window and tells her husband
they should find someone else to cut the lawn,
someone who won’t leave ridges and tufts.

But the thing of it is, Oliver’s been leaving
ridges and tufts for at least five years,
long before Mr. Miller lost his sight and
Mrs. Miller was confined to a wheelchair.

RoundUp

A Poem by Donal Mahoney

Monsanto still has problems
after the carnage caused
by Agent Orange.
People continue to decay.

Monsanto’s Roundup
has its problems, too.
It wipes out weeds,
some native plants as well.
The milkweed is a
good example.

In order to survive
the Monarch butterfly
needs the milkweed plant
but Roundup kills it.
This means
fewer Monarchs
in our gardens.

There’s no market
for dead Monarch parts
so corpses can’t be sold.
Soon they’re dust
and disappear.

But if we plant milkweed
in our gardens and
don’t use Roundup,
we’ll always have
the Monarch here.

Fireworks after Vietnam

A Poem by Donal Mahoney

Joe went to the mall yesterday
and found a big tent pitched
at the head of the drive.
Someone selling fireworks.
The sign said discounts
for all veterans.

Joe thought of his brother Bob
after his return from Vietnam,
a victim of Monsanto’s Agent Orange.
He would shake if he heard
sudden or violent noises.
He got rid of his guns and
never went hunting again.

Bob didn’t want rifles
shot over his body after he died,
an honor some veterans prefer.
His wife wanted the ceremony.
Joe cried when the volleys were fired.
He could feel his brother
shake inside the urn.
