Oakland CA by Drum

drum motif


in your heat beating

out ya way


in the public square


if you go to

the moon

drum in ya office

at ya church

in the street

loudly while marching

carry signs that

say Godz love


drum for life

to save life

to that life


in the night to bring the sun

at high noon to thank it for coming

at sunset to say goodnight to the light

at sunrise to celebrate its return

drum for the harvest

drum for the planting

drum for the birth of love ones

drum for their return

to the most high


for the most high


out the joyful noise of


still here hanging- in- there-baby

 of it all

drum drummers


silence the drum

fires begin
