Poet’s Corner: Battle for the Bards

Battle for the Bards

By Paulee Whitehorse, Nikiski

The bell has been rung

The evil doers have hung

Again the bells will ring

It’s time for goodness to sing

Our Brother the Sun knows

In the light is where love grows

Our Sister the Moon sees

Change is coming on the breeze

Our Mother the Earth agrees

Our Father the Sky decrees

The time has long passed

Our truth forever will last

This world is a very big mess

But the Angels still will bless

With love we shall sing

Truth and light it will bring

The Lord and the Lady have made their point clear

Perfect love and perfect trust is nothing to fear

Great Spirit has taken his children to task

Is being goo to the earth too much to ask

This journey through life

Should cause us strife

Take your neighbor by the hand

That’s how God had it planned

Fighting evil back is a must

With perfect love and perfect trust

Join me now my sisters and brothers

We can save the children and others.

Love and tolerance is the key

For to love thy neighbor is Godly

We love God’s creatures big and small

So protect God’s green earth it’s now your call.
