dr_con Posted February 4, 2011 Share Posted February 4, 2011 Wanting to wake You hear stories told about being Human often by voices pretending to be Silence The gentle Sumerian winds bring Yeast to the people pens of great cattle Gods colonizing suffering creating Citizens who drunkenly Yes to our Civilization They lie wanting to be human these plants and beasts know We have forgotten here amid laws and letters technology and techniques whose origins defy us I want to greet a king dressed as a servant as Jelalludin Rumi does in his eternal garden desert unexpected love holding court in images of sunshine gleefully announced by mad weathermen our unseasonal fortune Brazil and Australia drown while 46 of the lower 48 shiver and shovel The consequences of our bargain broken vows to our own innate royalty unable or unwilling to renegotiate our contract we choose to live in squalor shantytowns on the imaginary borders of Eden.
