we are the cult of the big stones
we are megalithic builders
we domesticate the large beasts
to do our bidding, haul huge rock
across miles, impossible treks
to erect monuments to gods
in the sky across the seasons
blessed are we in levitation
pre-dynastic smart engineers
sonically we raise the living
to heights heretofore unattained
from depths explored long before you
ever existed; we are thought –
primitive logic more advanced
when viewed through the wrong end of time
