Rambling

Rambling in Spain

It was green

A pocket plant

For a couple

Black and red

Beetles

And rabbits

They looked at me

And I at them

Then they did what I can’t

They vanished

Not a sound or twitch

To be able to just stay

Hidden and watch it all

Drift by

The handsome waiter shock my hand

I had been the one to smile

To ask him how he was

We had eaten already so passed by

His outstretched menu

But the day was hot and he looked

Roasted as a Sunday duck

I grasped both hands

and humanity was good again

50 lengths of the pool

Easy peasy salmon squeeesy

Dee swam smooth

Ava was a mermaid

Luke like a swimmer with shoulders

The Spanish girls admired

I miss the mats the sweet the puzzle

Of my physical heaven of Brazilian

Jiu jitsu but I’m lifting and swimming

And walking and eating

It’s only worth it

It’s only worth it

If it’s worth it

Wheres the anger gone

The fight against the clampdown

Wheres the anger gone

The fight we never lost

Black and white

Brown and yellow

One and all

Just one race

One people

Wheres the fight gone

One creed

Dump your trump

Your losing card

Take the fist

From your balls

Raise it

Once then twice

Where’s the heart gone

One race

One creed

Take your religion

Your national pride

And burn it with your flag

Where’s the fight gone

One race

One creed
