The Stuff

A Poem by John “tribley” Hosier Jr.

they told us it wouldn’t hurt us
and we figured “why would they lie”
we had enough to worry about

ends up it killed more of us than the war
and it keeps killing us
from the jungle to our clothes
to our drinking water
into our eyes, blood, lungs,
skin, hair, nose, heart, kidneys,
brain, prostrate, colon
and onto our children

Dow—Monsanto—Diamond Shamrock—Uniroyal—
Hercules, Inc.—Thompson Chemical Corp.—
