How Can I

by Cee Are

Age Group: Adult

How can I tell you what you ought to
forgetting the bearers of the Water
and the changes of Orion's coming star
or passing of two fish back to the sea

Yet now you grasp at cold order
to hold at bay - chaos and disorder
of the coming of the daughter
inside, who may yet not be bourne
and well, that's killing we

As you take to poisoned water
forgetting all about whose daughter
of which goddess you truly are
every named bit of us a part of a star

How can I tell you what you ought to
will words pass numbed and deafened ears,
ever you to hear ?
Till down comes the order
to march on your kith and your kin

and once it's begun to begin
how can you avoid the slaughter
of all their dreams and dreamers
that you've once said - you loved ?

Will then - your will awaken
from the cold embrace of iron
before the last of Trees has fallen
before the gates of faerie
to see it's killing we

To see US - there is no 'Other'
that She needs all her sisters & brothers
if She is to heal all of you and me
into the freedom of the all of we
That is each and every one of us

In the light of no clear seasons
As I speak to, in and of allegory
In the dark of cold logics and unreason
You list by rank, file and category
every wonder of being in nature
you must not be allowed to become

For it's just too much too dangerous
to allow our freedoms to endanger us
or let the land belong to us
we who walk the earth
no stranger than dust
we who dream to be free . . . just to be

But we must have a military
We've been told so often and again
It's just so very necessary
Just like all these prisons
like all the required divisions
between you and me

When really all the causes of crime
Are right there every night in prime time
so we better be watching and believing
everything that is put on T.V.
lest we Wake Up and just be free

But for now you work for Mad Bankers
and the corp's that enslave us
who believe that 'cause they print $ paper
they can consume it all like cankers
and mother earth - they'll just rape her
as long as you are divided
and we are still not united.
