The Ancient Paths

20170808_112512-01254036410.jpeg

Walking the ancient paths
of my forefathers
to the mountain summit
from a favela slum
Singing a gypsy hymn
petitioning the heavens
for that Kingdom come
Ever the right answer
Always the wrong question
in a world where
maybe the baby
been thrown out
with your bathwater?
Señorita, señor,
sing for me again
that sweet gypsy hymn
Desperate times
Sacred treasures
Give me
that old time religion
Walking the ancient paths
of my forefathers
