oh my son
on that hill
some savage outlaws sat and they drank their rebel fill

no, my strange grip on you has failed
oh my stated body's ground up in rocky rain

a little safety and good feeling
allows the love we have to grow
i know dudes that gave their love away
for some way to fade away

put aside your rage --
now what do you feel?

Choctaw raises banner, says go marching in reverse
back to antibodies, o'er the ages' long traverse

lithe and long we wage
to find and sample phage

the clouds they seem to shudder, triple back, and pucker out
a blast comes, stunning all them, and puts the soldiers to a rout

sunshine arrayed
beams all with phage

and while the maundy wrote this story
the men eroded, draped in glory
they vanished into allegory
made to finally fade away

put aside your rage --
now what do you feel?

death, all the rain, all the roads
wet from the sleet and the snow

look to the west
to the north
to the east
to the south
to the sky
to the earth, grandpa
