The Time Lords


When the Old Wise Maker made Adam from wood and clay.
He cast him in to fire of la vida
And dried him in the sun as he lay
Charging no man!
 No penny from him to stay 
Once earth was young, fresh and green
Blossomed with life  so it seem
 Beautiful flowers and fruits hanging from the gardens of Babylon
White sparkling water flowed through the valleys of Escalon
Beasts of all nations made truces with men
Daniel was pardoned by  Panthera Leo in his den
Mother earth was happy just for a moment!
 Now she is red and rugged just like Mars  
And the digging of her skin left deep red scars
The cradle of life is without its Pisces
Devoured by wars, avarice and exploitation 
There is neither permanent solution nor explanation
Green ogres measured the land and the air with rulers for a shilling or two 
Sins of gluttony and profiteering is committed against brothers and you
Time has moved on to another dimensional line   
All seems well but nothing is fine 
 I come from one of the races of enlightened humanoids
The Whites Guardians, Blacks and the Eternals
4000 years after Christ crucifixion
 On an Exodus to achieve total human liberation
From the greed and hate which still is naked reality
My name is Carlos Anthropolos and who are you?
I was born of the stars, dust and winds
And I dwell in the tiny pebble far away from the Orion Arm
Away from the Golden Disc that reveals the sky at night
Icy, cold and dark 
Away from the celestial light
My home is Gallifrey
What is yours?
Immortality dwells in me like a Turritopsis nutricula  
I am like Alexander that is why I am so spectacular
With a third eye I can perceive the past and the future
Centuries I waited that I may met you my friend
I know of your existence squid monster 
But this will be your end
I left their earthly dungeons after the Armageddon of 3555
Blue gems turn red when cast in the infernos of hell
We raced through time and space to fight the Great vampires
We rode in chariots of golden lions which made haste  
Then conquer the realm of Hades deep in space
But that was not a enough
Enslaved the Barbarians of the unknown
We waged wars against the krakens of Neocropolos
In their sea of acid and mercury
Which sounds so ridiculous
We raided tombs of emperors and stole gold from mines
My disciples and I built steel Aves of war 
With talons of fire
And sailed in a sea of darkness in galactic Arks 
In our ageless peregrination traveling back
