A MILLION MILES

I have no enemies
Just reluctant friends
Wishing I was just a little 
different 
But you,
You swear to cross swords 
with me
But do hear me well
I wield no steel sword
Just this old pen
And a weary cold brian
With which to fight all wars.

Fly high meteorite
Burn your little life out
And I shall be here
when you dig the long fated 
crater
When your salty ash scatter
And the rains fill your empty 
shelter
I shall be here to tell your 
story
A story of the giant storm
slain by a gentle voice
That story of the conquered 
elephant
And the cunning tortoise.

But before the first shots 
take flight
Here I knock your door
With an olive branch
And these priceless jewels
To buy your smile
And save us all
The waste of a million 
precious miles.
