Essentials

Bring back the rain,

Tired of this desert plain,

Fill in cracks with sparks,

No to lumberjacks.

Blowing bagpipes of rust,

return to the dust.

Hello to the raindrops

Goodbye to the clocks

Birds returning in flocks

On the cusp of ravages

Prove you are no savages

—-

Relinquish the neon

Look further, up and beyond

Let the animal out of its cage

Proud and up, onto the stage
