Wanderer


Wanderer
by Tricia Pattinson

The sky is forever changing
Where better to hide the truth

The seekers follow stars
Sometimes they're taken for a ride

The Nine say Blacks are pure
Free of their DNA pollute

But Mother Earth protects her chicks
Even those kidnapped and experimented with

Mother Earth rules the roost
Allowing for variety and forgiving foolary

There are no hierarchies for the wanderer
No separation from Artola

Across the deserts of hearts forlorn
Through the broken shells of homes

Hear the ocean's spray cry out
Too burdened with grief

So many fear the seas
Unprospered hidden dreams

But just beneath the waves
Mountains of rubbish parade

When it all comes through
What will humanity do?

Will we deny its there
Raise and flood Mother Earth?

Or can we agree to clean
Return oceans to pristine

But people are not so strong
Most hold tight to was

Lounging with the guards
Bargaining a way beyond

As long as the seas remain
Their secrets and denials ok

But wanderers will carry on
Noninterference or fate has its hold

It is all collected there
Beneath the oceans of the worlds

Too bad we choose to live in deserts
And fantasize of happier places

A colony will soon take root
As far from seas as the moon

And wanderers will too take flight
Exploring all there is of light
