LOVE IT OR LOATHE IT
THE WORLD NEEDS A POET
A PROPHET, A SONG
moving on to the next phase
aquarius come
aquarius come
unlock the cages
set the masses free
we should be
humanity
instead of this
insanity


Man looks around, and in the blackness a light starts to emerge, fuzzy and hazy at first, but growing ever more brightly. A candle has appeared in his habitation, man takes in all it can see. Around him are stones, walls built by his gods, by spiritual forces which man will serve, which keep it alive. Man sees his offspring, hungry, in the frozen nights. The urge to kill comes quickly, to feed its offspring man begins taking from its home. In its anger with the gods, man has taken in beast. Beast hides deep within man, seemingly dormant. Man turns its eyes in the spring to the risen sun, and forgives its gods, with the earths renewal. Beast has seen its first sights. Beast goes in for the kill again, storing and hoarding from mans gods, promising man it is for its own good. Man remembers the first cold winter, and succumbs to beasts enticement. Man and Beast dance the dance of destruction and man begins to understand beast, and man begins to understand his gods. Suddenly Knowldge made alliances with Man and Mans beast. Control of man by man began.

man conquered earth, and man conquered god, and man conquered man through control, until a battle emerged, between mans gods and beast, and the poets said:

man is born
in wars with earth
its beast is formed
inside a memory
adorning DNA
as it is formed

man is torn
some men control
some men conform
some good men
fall in line
some bad will rise
and lock man
in a cage
as wise men
discover
science and faith
evil men
pervert its make
and man believes
the new make
reality
is really all there could be
what it communally can see
in HD
but doesn't share in
personally
detached but free
to decide
eternally
upon a lie
until men die

"If the America people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currencies, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their prosperity until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." ~Thomas Jefforson
