lyrics

Transhumant
Great word
The old paths
Old style
Man and
Beast
Going from place
To place
Higher ground
Valleys
Plains
The Savannah
Tripping over
Tusks
And teeth
Rust
And newels
From the
Age of Iron
Occasionally
The glint
Of some
Old burnished
Thing from
The age of Gold
When was that
Carcass of the
Whale
On Everest
Sleeping
Dinosaur
Under saint
Paul’s
Couldn’t run
When the
Primevial
Forest
Burst into
Flame

A comet
So big
It went
Through the world
Came out the
Other side
Voila
The Moon
And the gorgeous
Paly- what’s its name
To have seen one of them
Those transhumants
Will we ever be
So innocent
Again
A lone
Neanderthal
Last of its
Kind
Sat by
His fire
It was
Snowing
Butterflies
When they
Came

Blood on their
Hands
Blood in their
Gaze
Still he
Invited them in
He served up
The dinner
Like a good host
They served him
Up for
Breakfast
He never
Said a
Word
The beautiful
Neanderthal
Last of his
Species
The butterflies
Sang the
Dirge
Ah Ah
Transhumant
Licked
His lips
Raped the
Babies till the
Snow passed.
