The Unquiet Mind

Poets and priests
and singers of Babylon
Angels and seers
Wanderers in time

Teachers of stories
and that not yet whispered
Looking for love 
on the highway of time

Rock 'n' roll singers 
with battered old Fenders
Old men with books
pretty ladies at their side

Dreamers and schemers 
tellers of stories
Looking for love
On the highway of time

Flamboyant artists
creators of vision
Watching the world
in colour sublime

Writing alone 
in darkened corners
easing the pain
of the unquiet mind
