fortress

veru12_22_18a.jpgTear it down

the castle
with the flag waving
the men at arms
the turrets

the stones
the moat the bridge
built by peasant’s back
and on the backs of peasants standing

rend the ermine robes
melt the crowns
strew the jewels to sparkle
across the land

tear it down

the fortress
find fealty to no one
kinship with all
each one honored and not by coin

finally see the dreams left standing
the wild in the forest
moon laughing
hearts aglow in eyes and hands
