  237.     

Man Called Thunder

Bold Warrior
Of the Setting Sun
Stands on the Rock of Imprisoned Time
The stony features of his darkened face
Ask no pity
Claim no piety
But iron eyes remember:
Burning lodges on a blood-red river
Broken arrow on Sacred Earth despoiled
A riderless pony gallops into blackness
And is seen no more
For screaming children
Slaughtered wives
The Eagle cries for Justice
And there is none
In a heartless land
But shallow men
Dig shallow graves
And in the gleaming of Long Awaited Moon
Lone Palomino return from Midnight Pasture
And the Fallen Ride Again.

  238.     

Man Overboard!

It seems to me, in the end
(Or perhaps the beginning?)

It is the ego that dies

While the spirit soars to
A new and higher awakening.

  239.     

Manly Man

Hey there,
Little man.

Name’s Jack.
Big Jack they call me.

See that.
That’s hair.

I’ve got hair on my chest.
You know what I can do?

I can flip a coin off my bicep
And catch it in my hair.

Women like that.

  240.     

Medicine Man

My totem is the eagle
That flies through the spirit world
Seeing from above

All that lies below
On the wing of my words
Hear

The sigh of the wind
That carries the feather
To Earth.
