It’s silly season
An asteroid is coming
but where would it land?

I have had enough
the enemy is with me
sitting on my hands
All of us living Hamlets 
Damned which ever way we turn

I took for granted
that you would tell me the truth
I found it today

Flowers by themselves
bloom without trying or care
They are all in tune
To grow strong within nature
How else could we truly be?

The times are changing
I’m going back to the one
The silent centre
is where I reside with you
my own defender and friend

The cat owns nothing
he’s the solitary one
who owns all of you
The Egyptians worshipped him
the silent watcher of souls
