Utter and complete darkness

a backdrop for feeding

the  fresh green shoots

whose vibrant watery goodness

drawing sweetness from its roots


we families graze together

an innocent repose

gentleness our cover

sharing what now grows


guiltlessness  such purity

our joeys every one

immaculate of mind and bodywide eyed

and the sun


had burned to crisp our shadow

left us with a way

of feeding in the darkness

of imagining the day


Respect and love

are guides that give

providing vivacity

affirming tasteful expression

and the honest gravity


the starkness of the darkness

and the vigour and the force

the ardent the insistent

primarily a source


of life and all its meaning

the  prospetity of being

homespun and prosaic

unadorned all seeing


gracefulness and harmony

majestic symmetry

aphonic whispering mutterings

what its like to just be free


and all this honest magick

the vigour of the night

a bright light of the glamping bulbs

burns into our sight


a bullet leaden duty

propelled at such a force

ruptures every organ

From a vile uncanny source


our joeys well unfallen

wronged and left to die

a crying shame

the most vile of game

the most evil kind of lie


expressed as such an  outrage

in pursuit of soul

Relinquishing the rightful breath

the manner of control

so very many victims

angels we can say

are swallowed up ny the outback

in a less than transparent way.
