Let the eagles pierce the sky
And the pigs tear the earth
For now our lips remain 
By their thundering batons.
We strive on with the 
Sureness of unwanted 
Waiting to pop out in nine 
In nine years, or who 
In nine days or less.
Sleep not dear bleeding 
For the sun surely sets
And the moon finds its 
hiding place.
Yes, these arrogant flowers
Will shrivel and wither when 
December comes
And the raging wild fires
Will eat up their useless 
Now fresh and green
In preparation for the new 
planting season.

    The eagle's vantage point is still our own, Our wings outstreached are one with the heavens, Seeing, knowing, feeling, living, giving, loving. Ruben
