Deer Clan Song

And in the near west
(we may never see
far western stars)
in the west they have come.
The chariots of the Lady
upon our near kin and middle kin
upon the large reptiles
upon all the mammals and frogs
and upon the plants and trees
and upon much else
of Earth's Blood Earth's treasure.

They have come upon us --
they will come much more.
For we this day greatly pollute
and greatly burden
and wastefully kill.

They have come --
the chariots of Eve Gaia have come.
In the rapid grinding of wheels
and the flashing of DNA fire,
they begin to break our foolish flesh
who think to war with nature
