Written by Kenneth Hickey

 

Red moon of summer evening

August heatwave lasts apace

Cows bark like jackals

The queen dwells cool in residence

Her standard fluttering high

Strange messages linger still

Peace descends in silent waves

Old dragon winks wisely through the fields

Fingers of celestial clouds

Invade virgin sky

 

O heavenly father I have sinned

I forgot to bring the bins in

We sit and smoke the heavenly nectar

Music that brings sweet sleep down from the blissful skies

The dragon rises again

A powerful monster living down in the darkness

The hidden one appears for a moment’s turn 

The holy one’s true self slips out to speak

Sixteen again back in that Deutschland garden. 

He stares at the clouded moon
