WHEN THE STATUES CAME DOWN

When the statues came down

the volume of wood showed

that the real ones couldn’t stay on the fire

they had built for their heroes

like Churchill and Rhodes

they could only see that all the people

couldn’t know that it was about the rides

of night

and the storms of freedom

which began with the rider

named Mandela and his crowd

of rough riders

for the world is not about

the coming of Christ

it is about the workings of man

known as the beginning of the world for

you and me.
