Panda! Panda! quiet yet quick
Eating away on his bamboo stick
What dances do you do at night
When all the animals are tucked in tight?
Hey man I thought you were my friend.
I thought you were someone who didn't have to lie or pretend
I thought you were someone who would be there, someone that could be trusted
Someone that would stand up whenever I got busted
Do you ever wonder what's happening in other countries,
When you're here in America spending your money?
Do you ever think about the suffering children
Without food for days?
We trees are everywhere, there are many of us about
We keep to ourselves more and barely ever shout
We don't like to walk much, with our feet in the ground
Although we grow awfully tall and also quite round
It's dark out, pitch black in the middle of the night
There's no light at all, except the shadow of light
Luminous and winding, it walks down the street
Following it's carrier, connected at their feet
I dream a world where
No creature shall be discriminated against
Where one will stand up for another
And come to their defense
My name is rain
My name is wind
My name pain
My name is sin
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it crackle and scream
Like a lightning strike?
Or tremble like a nervous cat-
I am writing these poems from the bottom of the sea
It is wet and dark down here
And also hard to see
The paper is wet and I’m writing on page three
This poem is about what I think is happening now
Please dropp your things and look around
At the pain the sorrows the hearts on the ground
This man who says I love you is a stupid mistake
