In Transition. (Talking Rain p17)

we spin in circles of terror
caught in cycles of a nightmare
of judgement
where the mirror
of the present
shows the face of error
in transition
when the rains come the fires die
yet we are warm
like lice on the pubis
in love time
singing cold bones
in the rain of hope
around the flame of red dawn
in transition
we whirl on our stand
kicking skulls on the soccer-field
& from the grandstand
applause rings in blood-drops
celebrating the abortion
of freedom's child
in transition
wailing around the burning tyre
we raise a sacrificial pyre
songs of struggle tum quacks
in the quagmire
in transition we wear our hearts
on the outside
in t-shirt fashion trend style
colourful speeches popular talk
of hypocrisy
by the graveside
in transition
