Before the Enemy Comes

They treat our tears with


Hand in hand with

Greedy frustration


They roar like lions and

Block all roads to



They trespass on us

Night and day

Creating for their

Conscience a

Mocking symbol to

Love’s power


Masked creators

Who conjure their lives

On torn pieces of paper


Our kings and queens

Can never be conquered

So they lie down in fury

And gnash their teeth

Like men


Time has always been

Our best defense

And following the sun

By the light of the moon

We will correct

The blindness

In our black eyes


We will keep the knowledge

Of our selves intact

Our voice will praise

The eternal womb


Oh, prince of the generous heart

Give us a path to follow

Before the enemy

Inspiring but I'd like to think we can hide from them..... X the powers that be
