The Dormant Masses

The Dormant Masses

Embrace these tortured souls

This might be last call for them all

The dawn of nuclear eruption

Set the stage for their destruction

And don't feel bad when you move on

And leave the herd confused and doomed

In desperate times they move to violence

Through their wretched points of view

I think i'll drift among the stars

And guide the ancient pharoes home

There eyes so full of conscience light

So many answers they don't know

And soon they'll drift along besid me

Beneath the canopy of space

To bless the ones so far below

Who've also stumbled day by day

These dormant masses, minds of gold

Our culture blind to whats repeated 

Need a voice to guide them home

To shed delusions they've created.

Thank you sir...This particular one was written by Dickie Gonzo, The musician and poet and artist that I host as he is far to undervalued for the talents that He possesses. He is always growing. And if it's the last thing I do on this host we live on is to ensure that he gets his well deserved spotlight. Mine are labeled with Randy Sturridge.
