Get your affairs in order,
a familiar voice whispered
out of the blue.
Thanks for the warning,
but there is nothing
left to do.
No lingering love,
no financial strings,
no unsung songs.
Only one request, if I may.
Can we skip the drama?
I prefer a peaceful,
transfer of power.

Neither the silver nor gold are tarnished,
Cradled by velvet and shut fast within
Proud symbol, symbolically banished,
Burnished no more with the oil of my skin.
Never discarded, but exiled from breast,
As knowledge fractured the edge of belief
Context warred against allegory’s best
A ritual removal granted relief.
No gold can represent carpenter’s creeds

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 ...

How The 'Few,' Rule The Multitudes
'We,' are niether Darwinian, or Adam & Eve. We are, an Alien Hybrid. Our Architects, our engineers, our rulers, are few, and we, are the many. So how, do they keep control. What follows, is how 'we' ourselves, have been conditioned, and orchestrated, and manipulated, to uphold the whip for them. It is a whip they no longer need to weild as what is la...

Have you given up on me have I given up on you
What is it we really can do as we look like fools
Can't see the future past my own dreams
But can you say your truly free
Don't need no blessed beads.
Don't need no lucky rabbit's feet.
Just need our leader's minds to be free.
Instead of thinking of a destructive ideology
They have a death wish for...

Unknown eyes watching
Religious tolerance found wanting
Stops the spread
Of disease and death

He was generous he was sweet
He fed us well, we were meat
Yet somehow as others hobbled towards his call
To feed, to fatten, to round, to fall
I saw myself getting sick and more frail
I felt death near, I felt pale
I saw the colors of existence washing away like dirt in a shower
I saw Him as he was, generous with the meat yet not generous with His power
Thus this was the cu...

I enjoy bringing tough guys and gals to their knees.
I can make everyone in my path cry like babies.
You think you can stop me with drugs or alcohol?
That’s a fool’s game.
It will drive you insane.
Your candy doesn’t keep me away
anymore than a cross stops suffering.
The only escape is to free me
from the one place you fear to go.
I reside deep within your mind.

What if the Sabbath weren’t a day
but a state of being
that permeates our earthereal Eden?
What would you keep holy?

Is it a sin for your muse
to inspire mine,
provide momentary escapes
from loneliness, pain,
the daily grind,
give words to fantasies
of the mind,
connect soul ties.
It’s hard to believe
a God of love
would consider musing
If it is, that’s not a religion
to which I subscribe.
