  • Bare feet slap the forest floor
    Who will bring the healing rain?
    When will end the drought?

    (Séan Poole from Truth Cycle)

    Times are changing
    the men are not
    ice fields or an asteroid
    took the dinosaurs
    so they shall the men

    One original landmass
    slowly gave birth
    Asia, Africa, America
    left the nest forever
    so will the men

    War, religion, commerce
    ancient daily specials
    twenty-one centuries
    everything changes
    not so the men

    Old horseshoe ocean
    Mediterranean dispute
    Europe ill, America sick
    restless tribes to haggle
    borders, gold & god

    Time turns new seasons
    new seasons cycle truth
    looking at the forecast
    weather might be changing
    alas our man cannot

    (Séan, your dedication & solo...the craftsmanship of "The pain goes on as ever/As before/As if pain was all there was to this/And nothing more" (and its echo) resonate long after...many thanks.) Here's to the music!
