Back Sometime

We’ll get some horses
and a location already plentiful.
Build ourselves a shelter
and make-it into a home.
Modify a car to run on methane.
Slaughter some when necessary.
Live on what the land can give,
and give back what we take.
Suffer hardships every winter
and heatwaves every summer.
Make footprints small with little impact.
Take a pen and wrap
it round this song.
Say hello to all that other stuff –
to an atmosphere no longer clogged
by old school stuff.
A whole unsteady way of being,
back sometime in the future.
