This by an Icelandic Parliamentarian, Birgitta Jonsdottir - artist, activist etc. and amongst many other things (and why I took notice) is trying to publicize the persecution of Bradley Manning.

The FooLpoeM
I might be colorful
and I might paint the air
with mystical words.

I might get you to smile
from the bottom of your heart.

I might fall in love
with everything I lay my eyes upon
simply because my love
has no tags
it just is.

I might dance in the shadow of knowing
I might dance until I drop
but you see I am the fool of fools
as old as the soil
as young as the unborn
never seeking
just being
until I am no more
only my humble shadows
that I have created
to tail me into infinity.
