Subject: He Breathes the Blues

He breathes the blues into the unburnished, battered sax

His hips slide slowly to the music's groove

The guitar player picks the top of the beat on his ax

And you know they all been there more as they move

In harmony playing in concert but also their own piece

It's all the thing that wraps it into the thing they know in a collective soul

It is the in and out in perfect time of the waves to beach and back

Over and over peaceful now , powerful, giving and taking

The turned open ground waiting accepting the sweet lips of rain

The warm and slow , now hot quick fire of the sun

That sun and moon passing as they begin and end and done.

Subject: Harpers Ferry


Sometimes in Harpers Ferry I feel the presence of John Brown and his men

I still feel their fear as the troops close in

I know the rage of Brown that never was extinguished

The rage and love that drove a man who hated slavery more than he loved life

Walk on the grounds of Storer College, feel DuBois and know he still walks there on the heights

Above the Shenandoah and now above the evil of this day and it's strife

Ol Brown and DuBois answered The Spirit that called them to their fights

Part of their answers were in Harpers Ferry

And part of their answers are with us. What will we do in days rife

With hate and the evil of anger misplaced

Will we stand and struggle for all of us and light and life.

Democracy is unknowable

Unless you've experienced it

Then the loss of democracy is unthinkable

Born to be free hard tho it may be

We were not born to democracy

Democracy is learned, taught

Struggled with and for age after age

Learning or teaching democracy starts with a thought

What if a people could govern themselves

Instead of being governed by the strongest or meanest or just wiliest or richest

What if a people could decide collectively

How to live together, which way is best

It is never a given, this democracy

Always threatened under attack by those whose souls lack the fullness

Of light, unable to see

And again the people must wage the age old fight and be bold

To preserve the promise of humanity

And the fullness of our collective soul

Subject: Fight for One Another


We who work everyday, love our kids and one another

Who know our place in America is worth a fight for all that's right

We feel America, our failings and our success for each other

We cannot and will not abandon America's Dream that we might

Make a way for all the hopes born in the bosom of our universal mother

The hopes nurtured in the hearts of slaves and sharecroppers, workers, poor farmers that we might

Leave a world better for our being here and loving one another

We, our people, will not abandon all the life and lives and blood bled in night after dark night

Do not look for our backs, we will not run nor will we smother

The future promised us by all the tears of all who made hope possible, something real to hold

Today we know this fight is ours, that  the way ahead demands we be bold

We will fight for these things born in our hearts , sealed by the struggle of others for one another
