The Drum....... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

the drum
clothed with
sheep's skin
is absolutely
hollow inside

it is named
nothing yet

know its power
for it can call
enemies to war

make naked men
and women dance
for love

it is hollow
you open it
it has only air
and yet

hit it with your
fist and it will
wake all powers of
this world

it can decide
war or peace
live or die
dance or kill

love or love or
