rainbow stallion

the enemy is a blind thief in the night
stealing away fathers and grandfathers
and destroying the daydreams of college graduates
it invades the homes of politicians and factory workers
and death casts it’s shadow on the walls of hospital rooms
as a family mourns behind a glass wall
and hope disappears into the cracks in the ceiling
then the savior of men rides in on a rainbow stallion
armored in a vast array of cotton and plastic
telling tales of future days and newfound freedom
castle walls are built around vulnerable children
an invitation sent, bringing rescue to those who accept
you are my rainbow stallion, my savior of men
you cover my mouth with your speech
a discomfort, a safeguard
as you protect the air in my lungs and set the future into motion
you give me hope that things will get better

they have to get better
