He Tells of a Time

Updated: Jun 30

He tells of a time

when the Celts were wild

and the Scots were free

until the flames of shame forged their destiny


And the pipes lament

up and down Glencoe


He knows of a time

when Pawnee and Cree

lived in harmony

until forked tongues and guns scarred their destiny


And tom-toms echo

around Grand Canyon


He heard of a time

when African men

helped readily

until slave ships and chains stained their destiny


And marimbas

beat low in Angola


He remembers a time

when the rabbis prayed

for their Germany

until genocide gassed out their destiny


And a harp mourns

in the Holy Temple


Let the instruments play

If we listen they’ll say

that the hate in our heart

is much greater in part

than the love in our soul

when it fades from control


And the notes float

about the universe


He tells of a time

when the Celts were wild

and the Scots were free

until the flames of shame forged their destiny


And the pipes lament

up and down Glencoe


Let the instruments play

If we listen they’ll say

that the hate in our heart

is much greater in part

than the love in our soul

when it fades from control


And the notes float

about the universe
