When “Pigs Have Wings” Environmentalism

Flickr Photograph

The National Mall, Washington DC, TRASHED, after the Inauguration of Barack Obama. The photograph was taken on January 20, 2009 at 12.53pm EST.

“The time has come,” Obama said,
“To set aside childish things:”

Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And wonder why America’s Mall is trashed–
And whether pigs have wings.
