As sun departs
the sky glows pink
hills and grasses
take on a pall
of indigo

Alone upon the meadow
a red board house
full moon on rise behind
all its shades are drawn

This land
this house
that truck
all are mine
not yours
I’ve put up a fence
to keep you out
I’ve loaded guns
behind my doors

they suck
the life
from you

I want things simple
my mind won’t
take no more

You show me
you can dance
with grace
and care
and benevolence
and maybe
I’ll join in

Til then

I mean it
I surely do

My guns
are cocked
and pointed
right at you

For far too many, it is less taxing to exclude than to include. Would be nice if we fixed that.)
