Don't Tread On My Dreams

"Tread Softly because you tread on my dreams" (William Butler Yeats) Allow me to shout in ancient ruins Light up the abracadabra of existence Let the pyramids heed my silent words And unravel the tales of time To uncover the hidden myth How the lizards dance to the sacred drums I want to create a call Off ancestors not man Allow me to summon my dreams To call our ancient myths And how the endless treading calls for vacuum Not of ancestors but man How the drummer mask up his sorrows And the crowd moves to its tunes Whether sorrow or happiness The rythmn lies in the man and not the stick not drums.
