mother knows best

the rain falls upon

the city of angels

a thirst-quench

drenching

to wash away all our sins...


mc-mansions on hillsides

teeter perilously

as grain by grain

the sand slips away


mother earth

pissed and angry

for the scars upon her face

she will pull the rug

out from beneath the unsuspecting strangers

who aid and abet the guilty


while showering love

upon harmonious gardens

blossoming and fruitful


life and light

echoing through the canyon
