BABYLON

BY  THE  RIVERS   OF  BABYLON

To look into Mandela’s face  is to see the face of:

Gandhi

Dali Lama

Gautama

Jesus

Yahweh

Pan

 

The peace  joy  suffering  wild abandon  wisdom  innocence

A union of opposites   a face of transcendence imprisonment

freedom enslavement   Buoyant

 

He rises now  above  Robben   where his sweat caused flowers to

grow  & his tears the rivers he now sails upon

__

 

By the rivers of Babylon (Rough bits of Babylon)
there we sat down (You hear the people cry)
ye-eah we wept, (They need their God)
when we remember Zion. (Ooh, have the power)
