America: A Prophesy
1 -- Motherwit --
Every man talks by me
And yet so often mispeaks.
If God could speak – he would not
For he said his peace and he said his panic
Listen, God is mere rush over the lip of mother
The grand all Matriall matter of us all
She spirals like lightening from an atom in my mind
A fever, an ecstasy, I am pure magnet, I utter out!
Great! Great! Perfect is America above all Nations
For America is the first and only
to allow the union of all nations
A complete United States
Her people, her literature, her ideas
The prototype for utter opening of everything wordly
You do not see it because you cannot see it
But you feel it and know it
Never trouble over the stutter in your song
This minor worldwide devestation
Laugh and say, “so what! We are eternal, immortal
America is eternal, immortal
Mankind is eternal immortal
Universe is eternal immortal”
I said no Om, when I created the world!
I laughed like river splash
and sang perfect love
America! You doubt, you wonder
Are bothered and kicked
You believe your enemies,
you doubt your power—
the great united everything
has no right to doubt
She who owns all
and is all
I love you,
the ever you, your whole history
Every crime and every justice
all comes together in your perfect being
You see this not
If you could see through my eyes
You would fall in love
as I fall in love
you are the palm of my hand
Your men and woman:
The creases in my palm
the lines in my hand
Would you read these lines?
Watch your rivers
and read them well
the palmist will know where my future lies
Forever and always
always and ever with you
Who roils like boiling milk
If you doubt
Would I teach you to undoubt?
I doubt it
It is done, I have already worked
the word through you
I sit back
Your nation is as endearing
as the purring tiger.
I love and believe in you
2 -- Man I --
My inner in response
resonates, receives, and repudiates her
America – you burst the world womb
And now the righteos rays of Apollo
fall like apalling plague over Earth
Darts to knock down many of our best
but we will survive
And by and by grow stronger
As a purer sun warms us to immortality
Helios’ veil is rent and yet we manage
our rivers will inseminate
the glorious land.
Wait and see my earthlings
What a great service
Your foolishness allows.
The earth falls desert
and my heart water shall
woo her back.
Not since Prometheus forebrain
saw his way out of Ethiopia
Having eaten the tree of knowledge
the coffee cherry
And ascended in mind
and carried the fire of inspiration
in his reed fingers
(Egyptian the first)
Has such a world wide gain
fallen to man
“Create and Rule”
Are the glory of man.
Wake up! Sleeping angels!
See what the vampires have done
With the very blood money they fed you
See how they oversip their welcome.
even in cheerful innocence
Working your own job and doing wonders
Nor blowing lazy like lilies in the field
But lilting a gentle spin of text and textiles
you bless yourselves.
your daily making of bread, asked from none
by your own sweat and joy
you make the world
She is yours
your place is forever
and unique among nations
that only immortals live on her land
the empty hearted were struck dead
whenever they ventured her plains
America alone equals the hyperboreans
America a melting pot
and the amulgum metal
never a twain
if you endorse or refrain
America, dare not regret the glorious crimes
the atrocities and outrages by which you scar history
you are glorious, and your shadow is also glorious.
Let the weak and the wounded climb into their cave and die
God is not in the weak
and will not make his ways manifest through cowards
Laugh and scoff and do better
The cheerful are worthy of good and glory
The weepers and mourners
are worthy of melting into sea foam.
Indeed they become sea foam
the ocean too is immortal
And you will see
I will even fill your lakes with dolphins.
America you set the world electric
You gave the world technology
they imitate, they add, and always add to your pyramid
with your own eye glowing atop.
Sing you your labors a working song
lend grace over your work
and cheer to your day
Enjoy all your work
and will you work sublimity best
Ignorant and omniscient you are
Write the fates of God and men
Sysiphus by the stroke of his boulder
Wrote the fate of Zeus
You write greater fates
When even yawning a yarn.
America the perfect
Nation of nations
Both the undergod and innergod
You alone are worthy.
