Words often mouthed
For the dead of bloody war

no recognition like
many such Aussies in
mulberry bushes
Yet he shovels the

TAKE YOUR FREEDOM
Is freedom given? Is freedom taken?
Should San Andres sit, sit like the beggar?
Beg for freedom, beg to get better,
Or defy the oppressor, and our soul deliver.

Take your freedom, take it now!
For only beggars have no...

Once I was kicked by a mule, as I was remonstrating, 
a dog interfered and bit my ankle. There is something

I drool over
to come and see,
those lovely places around
truly,  a sight to behold.

Artifacts from Spanish times

cascades of flowers
green trees elsewhere
give delight to...

During the middle Paleocene period
In swamps of Northeastern Colombia
On the South American continent.
