Claim tycoons with bottomless purses
With a plethora of dollars to flash and flag

Dirt-cheep government clinics treat death
And disease just like they are dirt and refuse
Which in a way is just about fine.

Human life deserves a platform to unfold
Away from straitjackets of pious scrutiny
Whose eyes, ears and hands feel so cold
They reject freedom and project a mutiny...

swirling down the steep canyons
sucking moisture from the atmosphere

A PATHWAY IN THE HILLS
A winding pathway up the hills
My weary eyes can see,
It ambles up a rocky ledge
Then turns away from me;
