A Wind Gathering

A Wind Gathering

There is a wind gathering

an ill wind…

It is gathering out there
with method upon the planes

where it is yet marking time…

When it will come tearing

Darfur will be a thing of laughter…

But where is the oarman

has he fallen asleep?

The ship now totters at midsea

left at the mercy of Forcara’s wind…

There is a wind gathering

an ill wind…

And nothing is done to plant wind breakers

to stem its sinister rage
if it comes tearing…

When it will explode
Darfur will be a thing of laughter…
