  • o to be in finland
    now that midsummer is here

    all the people, educated
    by the mostest bestest education system
    go to lake
    bonfire
    drink too much
    fight
    cry a little
    sulk next day

    liberated women
    more equal than most
    empowered by role
    models
    such as tarja who used to be a president
    of the republic

    anyway
    these selfsame women
    make solstice magic
    to see
    their prince come
    withthemandatorywhitehorse
    (jokeofcourse
    butstill)

    might work this year

    from midsummer sauna, run
    to roll naked in
    field of
    rye

    which are few and far
    nowadays

    so

    on the five kilometre naked
    run to rye field
    bad luck if
    no suitors appear

    more likely to have 10
    though
    no
    white horse. a moped maybe?

    (Thanks and apologies to e.e.cummings)
