In the drum



In the drum 


drum – drum – drum
power-voice the
people-mass
drum – drum – drum
spin the web of non-
think until the thread
breaks and into the
tail-spin spun insist 
of salvations-scream-
the sturm-drang drum 
shall fall silent as acid 
rain and blinking away
blind no more – 
all shall see 
a new day

as one

  1. Indeed the drum can pound the masses into hysteria, but also can bring us a slower beat like our hearts beating a rhythm of peace....love the end.

  6. Miners and big business and other polluters won't like that. won't even mention the the politicians who need to supplement their meager salaries.

  8. Sometimes it takes something drastic to clean the slate..see things anew..the silent fall of acid is particularly resonant...i hope it creates a new day
