Know Your Enemies


I know what tongues tastes like
I know what hungry eyes see
I know what lonely ears hear
I know what broken hearts feel
But can't phantom one sure thing
How modern minds think.
****
Just take a random look around
What a mess coming from the top
We should change world order
Have bottoms rule the top
****
From Seas to Shining Sea
From Baghdad to Tripoli
Form Palestine to Somalia
From Euro to Dollar land
From Yuan to Dirham
****
Every spot under the Sun
Boiling to meltdown
Is this the end of my 2-legged line?
Then revert me to my original 4 instead
At least in the jungle clarity assured
Friends from enemies!

Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
