Kumbayah

It is Possible
To stop a bullet
Exhaled
from an exhausted gun

It is possible
While dawdling round the sun
Naked
To burn your self anointed
palm oiled feet

It is possible
Contentment
will drown all catastrophists
in a bird bath
east and west
of Humpties wall

only leaving
the pessimist-optimists
to stay warm
under wet blankets

singing
Kumbayah
round napalm camp fires
with a charred to the bone
congregation
