Second Chants


“OK”, she said with gun to head
And heart in hands with blood thereon
“You’re on”, she said
And wished me dead
For all I taught and did and do
For all I knew the show was through
Over and out, the power pulled out
“But maiden fair” I cried
“Despair is not your natural colouring!”
“Earth to earth” said she (said earth)
“We’ve had our clashes, ash to ash is
All that you have left behind.. oh humankind
So blind! Re-wind!”
She said in her undress
“Desist from rape, redress and yes –
You still have time (at least a bit)
To change….”
