No stone
needs to be

No stone

All the stones
are there
for you and me
to see

All the stones
usually are just
a stone’s throw away
(right under one’s nose)

Whether it is
from down here
to up there
in the first world

Whether it is
it is cast in stone
that power corrupts
in good times and bad

Stone the crows
is everything not
in plain sight
(it galls one)

Do we need
those hoary old
Rolling Stones
to tell us so

The country’s emperor does the stones.
