Homage Kenneth Koch





If I were doing my Laundry I'd wash my dirty Iran

I'd throw in my United States, and pour on the Ivory Soap,

       scrub up Africa, put all the birds and elephants back in

       the jungle,

I'd wash the Amazon river and clean the oily Carib & Gulf of Mexico,

Rub that smog off the North Pole, wipe up all the pipelines in Alaska,

Rub a dub dub for Rocky Flats and Los Alamos, Flush that sparkly

       Cesium out of Love Canal

Rinse down the Acid Rain over the Parthenon & Sphinx, Drain the Sludge

       out of the Mediterranean basin & make it azure again,

Put some blueing back into the sky over the Rhine, bleach the little

       Clouds so snow return white as snow,

Cleanse the Hudson Thames & Neckar, Drain the Suds out of Lake Erie

Then I'd throw big Asia in one giant Load & wash out the blood &

       Agent Orange,

Dump the whole mess of Russia and China in the wringer, squeeze out

       the tattletail Gray of U.S. Central American police state,

       & put the planet in the drier & let it sit 20 minutes or an

       Aeon till it came out clean

It is written to emphasise the socio-economic and political problems our world faces.

Ginsberg speaks of worldly matters in a sense of regretful actions. His views of each problem all connect in that they \"should be washed,\" meaning they shouldn\'t have happened

i think this is trying to emphasize problems in our world and simplify it by comparing it to something as simple as washing clothes.

This poem is about washing away the pollution,war and violence in the world. The whole poem is a big metaphor and it all makes sense, and thats what I think makes it all that special.

I, myself, think that this poem shows how Ginsburg would ant to change world and restore it from human-made \"disasters\"

Allen writes about corruption in the world. The main these of this poem is 'washing'. He talks about certain issues, such as pollution, scars of wars, and making political wrongings right. In the end, all Allen wanted was World order.

Poetry has no underlying meaning. It's only meaning is the one at the surface and you're wasting your time over analyzing stupid words.

I would have to say his work is quite extraordinary he brings a hole diffrent prospect to the poem world

.: :.

It's hard to criticize dead poets who cannot respond. Ginsberg pits real life against Madison Avenue, a dubious contest. More importantly one wonders whether Ginsberg does his own wash or whether the metaphor is metaphorical. Life does not yield to such frivolity. This saddens only. Is all lost?
