from by Hector MacInnes



There goes the rule book again
Shattering another window pane
You’ll find me working up more of the same
Til Birnam Wood comes to Dunsinane

Through the air I watch it arc and reel
Among the leaves upon the pine and steel
The endless waste and timeless grace will train
The eyes of Birnam Wood on Dunsinane

Soon, soon, we’ll reap out guise in Birnam
Soon, soon, we’ll march it east again
And we’re whole, and we’re home
In the end.

Until that day, we’ll have to stay our hand
Not to build a mansion on the sand
Til Beulahland is built among the cane
Til Birnam Wood comes to Dunsinane.


from The Day Is Loud, released November 1, 2015
