    I pulled out my shovel the other day
    JUST to dig that BUSH up..............

    I've grown tired of the "what is, not really is"
    game...the lies, deceit and trickery...
    but, that BUSH was good...because the mystery
    to me was...how so many
    people believed, that BUSH was burning
    ...talking to them/words delivered from the
    lips of heaven ... but that BUSH had forked
    branches and it's roots choked my garden
    and tried to "grow flowers" and disguise it
    as my friend ... but my senses are keen
    and it's flowers smelled of oil and it's thorns
    pierced so many hearts .... that mother's cried
    because their children died ... for what?
    So more BUSHES could grow? So that BUSH could breathe
    life into other privileged gardens while starving the
    rest of the land?

    So I dug that BUSH up well before November ...
    and sipped a French wine while enjoying
    my private bonfire ..."Burn Baby Burn"
