Crushed joy in the garden of Eden – K.B

Crushed joy in the garden of Eden 

 

 
I was sittin’
Dreamin’
Smokin’
Thinkin’….

Then came
A big monster:
« I shall crush
You and your joy »

I chased after him,
The more I was running,
The less I was enjoying
Myself
Until all trace of pleasure
Faded out.

And there I was,
Naked again,
With a world
That didn’t change
An ounce or an inch,
Or a pinch.

The sting of things
Came back on me,
Sterilized and beaten,
The wind got colder
And all the charms
Faded out as well.

Do you also get that
Feeling of leaving
Cosmic love
While the heat
Could’ve been going on
Forever if not for this
Fly I was chasing ?

The monster hid.
But he’s calling more
Friends to defeat me.
Therefore, let it be
With firethief …..
It has always been thus,
The nagging world
That needs to be
Outshone,
Outsmarted,
Dynamised,
For he is lying
In a lethal stillness….

Those songs
I’ve already heard…
They speak of love,
Solidarity, peace,
They are protest songs
And they were needed
To heal people from this
Relentless violence….
