pressing the iron to smooth the valleys and crags
in the shirt worn at The Point
when you crossed over from East to West
balancing the bubble* with the spear
language is common
eye colour, hair
so why shouldn’t they entwine again,
what is the fear?
although that happened more than sixty years ago,
why is Hitler still mentioned,
haven’t we all gotten past it? no,
we remember that war
when people were innihilated, bannished
was this done with god’s blessing, to learn something
no, i’m afraid that god was held captive too, his powers demoted –
that’s what happens when someone trusts someone bad.
people do follow like sheep, because of promises planned
and like crumbs crumble more
they eventually carry with wind
eyes clear, sights get in check
we’ve balanced before
without bubble*, but not without spear.
