Oakland CA by Drum

drum motif

drum

in your heat beating

out ya way

drum

in the public square

drum

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

drummers

drum for life

to save life

to that life

drum

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

drum

for the most high

drum

out the joyful noise of

survival

still here hanging- in- there-baby

 of it all

drum drummers

drum

silence the drum

fires begin

drum
