Have You?

have you defended the falling rain from rainbows
crumbling in your armour
and you fought to crumple the paper sun

the firmament of tears
in your own sphere working late
ah throw away the moon the stars and the sun

the old ways of thinking about them
we have learned to fly
with nowhere left to go

have you defended the glistening snows
from Christmas taken the children far
from their native Star

and broken the looking glass
weeps from the path where the children always stray

now holding the moon in their hands
incapable of understanding
why has the sky the sky fallen in

on them
