Seeds of Reconstruction

Bees buzz and birds sing
as wars rage and cities crumble

but we’re sure to survive the wrath
with royal jelly in our blood
and a chain of thorns that bind the balance
between order and chaos in this world

Sun shines and spring blooms
as genes mutate and viruses spread

just keep your head up, soldiers
because there is a sweet reward
waiting on the other side
of this sour patch apocalypse

Faith builds and love lasts
as protests mount and warmongers bury their heads

beware the signs of red
when the streets begin to fill
if buckets are all we have
to keep this ship from sinking

Wind blows and bells ring
as storms rage and God weeps

know every flood is designed to save us
with new gardens growing priceless
as raw soil casts timeless spells
and miracles stop counting pennies

Hearts beat and pulses thrive
as toxins burn and bodies starve

but we are sure to accept the challenge
with aloe vera in our guts
and lungs lined with healing smoke
that raises the signal of waving flags
