oh i am the eternal wanderer
through jungles through seashores
i never leave the safety of my library
may i say maybe from another age
punished for my arrogance and being sent here
my world of holy art and music
but i argued against some of em like i always do
and justifiably angry with me arranged for me to be sent here
oh god people are still having wars and eating animals!
oh god they are arresting people for using medicinal herbs!
oh god the poor still have to fend for themselves!
oh god a small group of evil rascals is ruining it for everybody!
oh god the people still falling for the most primitive propaganda!
barbarian days heathen cities godless times
wake up you sleepers
(then suddenly weary) or dream on …..
what difference does it make now?
i am humanity in a microcosm being the smartest and the stupidest
all this intelligence oh baby where did it get us?
live from your spirit not from your head
i am eternal spirit i do not perish
i have pulled on my mansuit to learn sorrow and strife
i am here in these abrasive days to sand back my prickly pride
this is the world where they crucify their messiahs
and burn their joans of arc
this is the world where some people do what they like
and other people will always get shafted
unfortunately the ratio is about 1 to 99 (if that much)
this is the world that gave you its first great war not so long ago
millions dead oh well…..give em a holiday
i am odysseus in the land of the lotus eaters
standing at the shore
wondering which gods are aligned for and against me
when shall i ever get home?
