Albert and the Scattered Colonies

Albert and the Scattered Colonies



You knew they were waiting

And so you gave all your teeth

You set about treating

In their scattered colonies


In declassifying

The civilisations, glibly

Tried and retrying

By the pious and the rich


In pacing your message

In scattered small

Representations

You drew a billion eyes

You drew a billion eyes


This conscious reverence for life

It drew us closer to mankind

It drew us closer to your mind


And so they beheld you

A brother in deeds of love

Your Helene beside you

Your hands turned to living art


The problem with your peace

Is thirty years and it would cease

Oh Albert where are you?

What do we do now?
