Liberation Blues

 

“Getting free isn’t luck” Stonehouse #39, Red Pine trans.

 

You wished You wowed You vowed and swore and swore

to liberate to set free  wa wa wa-nna 

be be-come liberat-ion

 

There was and was not

but we promised with iron and with fire

anyhow anywhere 

 

We wished wowed vowed and swore and swore

To be be free  wa wa wa-nna

be be-come liberat-ion

 

Our blood wanted to be past

the tangles the thickets the caves of wild foxes

all in our way not to mention but it cannot

be unsaid the curses and cusses the delusion

and the subsequent deluge the fostering and

the festering of the fabulous funk of being Right

 

This Rightness

with its life-denying wrong-ness

follows all of our lives

a rotten miasma signifying

mistakes have been made 

Did you Forget?

 

I wished You wowed We vowed and swore and swore

to free and to liberate  wa wa wa-nna 

be be-come free free-dom

 

remember

the tuneless tune

the windy road the shiny mirror

the polished and rough 

bind equally

 

Wished wowed vowed and swore and swore

to liberate to be free  wa wa wa-nna

be be-come liberat-ion

 

repeat reap repeat.

Juris,   This had me Wowed and I vowed and swore and swore to read and reread and repeat this addicting charming churning chorus.   This sucked me in and won't let me go.   This may be a tuneless tune but its tone is tenacious.   I loved it.
