Stupidity Street

By Ralph Hodgson

(Contemporary English poet, who publishes his work in tiny pamphlets with quaint illustrations)
I SAW with open eyes
  Singing birds sweet
Sold in the shops
  For the people to eat,
Sold in the shops of        5
  Stupidity Street.
I saw in vision
  The worm in the wheat;
And in the shops nothing
  For people to eat;        10
Nothing for sale in
  Stupidity Street.
