The Saguaro Cactus by Stephen Arndt Curses on the god of sun, His burn a crime like arson! Yet you battle him till night And fight until you have won. Curses on the gods of wind, Whose force is unimagined! When they bluster through your place, You face the attack, thick-skinned. Curse the gods of sand and dust, Who storm when winds wail loudest! Let them cloud the air and vaunt, Undaunted, you stand robust. Ball your fists to curse and cuss, Strong-armed Saguaro Cactus! Rail against the desert sky, Defy it for all of us!
