Wicked Western Wandering

Oasis blue,  
Desert red. 

Trailing dead,  
Shaman missing, 
Hunger led, 
Arsenic pool, 
Datura bed.  

Oasis blue, 
Desert red. 

Drunk and fed, 
Weaving thread, 
Gossamer ground, 
Slipknotted head. 

Oasis Blue, 
Desert Red. 

Literate doves, 
Cooing dread, 
Warbled warning,
Went unsaid, 
Ballads behind, 
Again ahead. 

Oasis blue, 
Desert Red. 

Seeking respite,   
Find instead,  
Brimstone bred, 
Siren’s singsong, 
Heard overhead. 

Oasis blue, 
Desert red. 

Smelling sulfur, 
Smelting lead, 
Look ahead, 
Fallout sickens, 
Empathies shed. 

Oasis blue, 
Desert red. 

Hopelessly lost, 
Vultures said, 
Festering flesh, 
Freshly bled, 
Warbirds laughing, 
Humanness shred. 

Oasis blue, 
Desert red. 

Always feasting, 
Plenty dead, 
Following fools, 
Trails retread, 
Arsenic pools, 
Datura beds.  

Oases blue, 
Deserts red.
