Close But No Cigar

May 20, 2019


The dragon understood

What was necessary

Burn down the throne



The paradigm shift

Lasted too briefly

To sink in and grow



Still adhering to

The way it was

With modifications



To not serve all

Only to serve

Those deciding



To serve themselves

Expecting many

To kneel or bow



When all it is

Everyone needs

Is food and shelter



Love and compassion

Healing and guidance

Forgiveness and understanding



From “Rush’s” “2112”

[V. Oracle: The Dream]

‘…I guess it was a dream, but even now it all seems so vivid to me. Clearly yet I see
the beckoning hand of the oracle as he stood at the summit of the staircase…’

‘…I see still the incredible beauty of the sculptured cities and the pure spirit of man revealed in the lives and works of this world. I was overwhelmed by both wonder and understanding as I saw a completely different way to life, a way that had been crushed by the Federation long ago. I saw now how meaningless life had become with the loss of all these things…’

The lyrical adaptation.

I wandered home through the silent streets
And fell into a fitful sleep
Escape to realms beyond the night
Dream can’t you show me the light?

I stand atop a spiral stair
An oracle confronts me there
He leads me on light years away
Through astral nights, galactic days

I see the works of gifted hands
That grace this strange and wondrous land
I see the hand of man arise
With hungry mind and open eyes

They left the planet long ago
The elder race still learn and grow
Their power grows with purpose strong
To claim the home where they belong

Home to tear the Temples down…
Home to change!
