PENDULUM 1

Round and round The spherical movement Of our spheres Through the course of our itinerary Coming acroos our old Manifesting as new Living it through it thoroughly Changed forms, primordial kernels Develops and grows in manifold Round and round Like a rolling stone We gather not a moss Ever futile, our unending journey So far so downwards Progress? Yes! In illusion and vanity Science and technology Dehumanizers that take us far From the primordial purpose Round and round Our admiration vanity Fans into burning consuming flame In fashion and surreal beauty Dragging us far beyond Eve’s age Still wildly we revel Digging deep in down drain Burying our world in stark dark Beyond the light of days
