Ice to Eskimos

They're calling the tribes together,
pulling down the flags and building statues
for that great name.

As he loosens his tie
his stranglehold on the last few saplings.
Dogs sit to attention.
Ants do what ants do – eke out their meagre existence.

I want to tell you there's more to it than this.
I want to tell you there's so much beauty
we can't bottle it.

But he found a way to sell
the "concept ice" to Eskimos.
Two blocks down they're charging fifty bucks
for a night in a virtual igloo.
Only in ?
