Madess Speaks - Poem by Wilfred Mellers

In a heartless world, I came forth screaming
Star spangled lights were not gleaming

Baptize to the world I came forth violently
Out of it all must go silently

Circumcised dreams only moments old
Covered my wrinkled body from the cold

Castrated hopes are dangles from an oak tree
Strange fruits it grows for all to see

In the mind's eye, I see dripping liquid walls
Under crystal skies of green waterfalls

Dancing Shadows in my darken room
The mind plays tricks as vultures loom

Sacrifices the innocents of the collective consciousness
The soul survives despite mankind's wickedness

Mercury induced psychosis on the unsuspecting masses
Mustered gray clouds the rainbow passes

Neglect I choose by those who are watching
Destroying ourselves the devil is laughing

As the woman goes into labor
The war mugger rattles his saber

As the earth turns it starts to burn
Mankind is doomed we'll never learn

They let go the dogs of war
No matter who, when, or where you are

A mother cries as their son's body lay
Blacken skies as the bodies decay

Irradiated grounds of orange clay
No more cavalry to save the day
