Messiah Of The Fields

Messiah Of The Fields

 

They left me hanging on a cross

The saviour of the summer crops

Just rag and straw so no great loss

My blood is in the wheat and hops

 

I faced the black and vicious hoard

Their coal cruel eyes and sharpened beaks

I am the ragged overlord

Who scares the crow yet never speaks

 

They pray to me to save their soils

From dark boned devils ...

The Mother To All

She’s a bright star, within the unlit night 

Guiding others through, the tough thing, that we call life

She would somehow, pull though 

The things, that to others, it would inevitably un-do

He's the sinner's Savior, He's God's Son

His goodness is limitless, His life is matchless

McFlurry Saved the Day

entry picture

`




McFlurry was the beast
that preyed on the
old ogre of a day
spent too long
in lectures & humidity

Across the river
of the campus jungle
McFlurry crouched
and pounced upon
the grizzly weariness -

ripping it to shreds
with creamy razor teeth
& cookies & cream claws
as we ended yet
another uni day
