~The Beat of A Single Drum~

Clouds in the sky,

Eyes swelled with tears

As they majestically pass by

Like the slow parade of years.

 

The beat of a single drum

comes flying through and endures in their ears,

A native drum from a far away land.

 

It fights to break a long silence,

But it is too late,

Their people are dead

And their land is gone.

 

Clouds in their eyes

As only a few are left,

Fending for their lives

To the beat of a single drum.
