Ancient Times

the man sat in meditation on the rock by the trail

above the forest where birds used to sing

where wild men used to dance naked to the drum

where we once roamed in stardust from an ancient time

 

so come let us walk in the new concrete forest

where only zoo animals dwell in silence

in sadness of their prison bar cells

forgetting their nature of the life they were meant to have.
