Klaus J. Gerken

oh the masters are all students
in the clutches of pure love
and the students are all masters
slowly killing every dove
and the heroes are all broken
limping to their destroyed homes
there is nothing that can save them
save the emptiness alone

so they wander in the desert
forty years is not enough
sometimes many lifetimes must be needed
to wash off the holy dust

we stand daily in the shadow
of the mountain and the flood
