The world is perhaps taken too lightly

Radioactive bombs bust down clouds and imitation gods appear

The rain causes bronze lamentations

Soil itself is sore.

The drummer boy remains still for a moment considering his silence.

In the peace he is allowed, his sticks rest idle.The summer has been good to him.

Crowds have organized themselves into neat rows of curled chaos.

Though his enemy is all around, he taps diligently.

His eyes level with the horizon

Red hands unfurl, wave, increase

They consider his bout with greatness.
