A chess board for playing out the game of power over
Stomping across this Earth with no true respect
Honor is forgotten in the obscuring shadow of this malady
Is the dirt of this disease so deep that it cannot be seen?
The answer truly lies in humility and heartfelt honesty
Like a gardener rooting out the dead and useless weeds
Painful process. War to be waged on the unnecessary growth
The tender keeper of the land must clear it’s inner landscape
So that love can be humbly planted.
