The Wasteland and the Prophet


The Wasteland and The Prophet
In the desert the prophet takes refuge
and recollects the wasteland:
The shifting sands are not enough–
no fruit is found where none take root.
The shifting sands are not enough to notice,
wise men see them shift and think themselves wise.
They cry out, of shifting current, you shift
and are the cause of all our maladies today.
The cultivators sew their seed.
The cultivators sew a different seed and never harvest
