Poetry / The American Dreamed

Thanksgiving for Desert

Rocky Canyon

O’ pilgrims pride mirror
O’ puritan fear monger
O’ paper traders feast
No more on our starving nation

Gratitude abounds
Freed captives
Find the way to the Kings table
Go now surrendering delusion

Stone trail of hot coals
Scorching the mirage of entitlement
Presented hungry to meat
Slow roasting scorpion

Forsake the invitation to
Roll back the rock
Erect the casino castle
Plummet test renewing bonds

The giants are bogeymen
The true promise land returns
Spread the banquet
Living Bread reigning

Step forward reborn
Come to the water
Lose this life to save
Follow light across the wasted

Character forging forage
Thanksgiving for desert
