‘If you wanna live to see tomorrow, take a lesson from the Mighty Saguaro’

The Mighty Saguaro

by Joey Racano © 2018

We’re livin in a world of illusion
There’s no bliss with this much confusion
Lost city without any morals
You have to choose between the cars or the corals

Got us livin’ by the laws of the jungle
Kick you down try to make you say ‘uncle’
But if you’re down I can lift you gently
Take off your shoes and get out of the Bentley

Your fossil fuel is a thing of the past now
California is burnin’ and fast now
There’s nothing natural about natural gas now
Close all the windows and doors

Hear the single by pasting the youtube link to your browser:

If you wanna live to see tomorrow
Take a lesson from the Mighty Saguaro
Your smart telephone’s got you sedated
You’ve been enslaved by the things you created

The way we’re living is wrong and you know it
Violent weather is beginning to show it
Nevermind about the new world order
Global warming doesn’t need any border

Dirty faces on the kids in the city
They face a future that ain’t very pretty
Everything you learned in school was wrong now
Got to find a way to all get along now

Put your name atop another arena
Your final battle’s gonna be with Athena
Got to find a way to save our planet
Take the power from the people who ran it

If you really want to see tomorrow
Take a lesson from the Mighty Saguaro
If you’re lookin’ for somethin’ to last now
Solar power, permaculture and grass now

Medicine Ball

Part I

An alien race was guarding this sector
Regarding all planets with life as a nectar
Rare in the Universe, as rare as could get
So they came charged with detecting a threat

The mother ship melted her way through the clouds
All aboard anxious to see through the shrouds
And there in the open as plain as could be
A giant stood snarling as tall as a tree

The alien crew knew all was sublime
The wonder of life was evolving just fine
With reptiles in charge there was reason to hope
All of the planets life systems would cope

They popped the champagne and they floated around
Ice cap to ice cap such life did abound
Up came the sun and around went the moon
All were lamenting of leaving too soon

But protocol dictated what should be done
The captain gave orders to sling shot the sun
Soon far behind them was 813b
Sagan’s Pale Blue Dot was all they could see

Part II

Never again did they give it a thought
Until HQ called them, their voices distraught
‘You told us that all was ok in that sector
Now we find 813b has a vector’

‘Turn in your data- return to main base
Your mission’s a failure, your crew a disgrace
Or choose to go back and find out what went wrong
Find what’s destroying that planetoid’s song’

‘Aye’ came the answer, ‘Lee Helmsman, all full!
Pitch left at the Pleiades, we’ll use them for pull
We have to find out what the vector’s about
Watch out for that asteroid, come about, come about!’

The captain turned on the big overhead screen
Past light cones allowing the past to be seen
Zoom it in with a will, if you will Quartermaster-
Let’s have a good look at this planet’s disaster’

And there on the screen came the scene sans the screams
Dinosaurs perishing ‘neath meteor streams
Nemesis Comet came streaking from heaven
Countdown to extinction came ten, nine eight seven…

The captain called back to now distant Main Base
‘Sir, there’s dead dinos all over the place
A one-in-a-trillion big comet came down
Allowing the mammals from holes in the ground

The rodents took over and soon changed their form
Learned to make fire, began terraform
Then came the cities and wars after that
They found without wars all their markets went flat’

Base answered ‘Yes captain, that would explain
Mountains torn down and the acid in rain
Return now to Headquarters, your job is through
There’s just one more thing that we want you to do…’

And off cross the cosmos the captain did streak
By sidestepping wormholes it took just a week
They left behind medicine for 813b
Another huge comet shot into the sea
