People of the Sky – Written Monday 31st October 1994 (Aged 19)

People of the Sky

shaky psychic
forging a dream
one made from
children’s tears
mother natures fears
tell us –
another fairytale
tell us –
what it is about
why is the air so stale
twisting and turning –
in bed
cannot get those nightmares
out of our heads
it is the evil that cares
listen to the old ones
we are their –
daughters and their sons
we are descended –
from the people
born of the sky
that is where our spirit goes
when the earthly body dies
listen to the witch
she will know more –
than you could expect
the people of the sky
they always know why

James Garratt – Monday 31st October 1994
