Under the world there’s a lot of ass, a lot of cunt

Under the world there’s a lot of ass, a lot of cunt
a lot of mouths and cocks,
under the world there’s a lot of come, and a lot of saliva dripping into brooks,
There’s a lot of Shit unde the world, flowing beneath cities into rivers,
a lot of urine floating under the world,
a lot of snot in the world’s industrial nostrils, sweat under the world’s iron
       arm, blood
gushing out of the world’s breast,
endless lakes of tears, seas of sick vomit rushing between hemispheres
floating towards Sargasso, old oily rags and brake fluids, human gasoline—
Under the world there’s pain, fractured thighs, napalm burning in black hair,
       phosphorous eating elbows to bone
insecticides contamining oceantide, plastic dolls floating across Atlantic,
Toy soldiers crowding the Pacific, B-52 bombers choking jungle air with
       vaportrails and brilliant flares
Robot drones careening over rice terraces dropping cluster grenades, plastic
       pellets spray into flesh, dragontooth mines & jellied fires fall on straw
       roofs and water buffalos,
perforating village huts with barbed shrapnel, trenchpits filled with fuel-gas-
       poison’d explosive powders—
Under the world there’s broken skulls, crushed feet, cut eyeballs, severed
       fingers, slashed jaws,
Dysentery; homeless millions, tortured hearts, empty souls.

April 1973

[Allen Ginsberg, de Collected Poems 1947-1980, in Collected Poems 1947-1997, Harper Collins, 2006]
