    Reid Baer FORETELLS the FUTURE from HISTORY
    -
    History, Jim, is a mess over and
    over you see many crows fly far
    over and land here on the same piece of soil
    heaped like history, Jim, history: an

    obsessive compulsive disorder it
    seems to me I’ve heard that song before, or
    at least the melody line it’s mine and
    yours too don’t laugh, Jim, it’ll kill you like

    a poison pill, maybe not today from
    your clean bathroom medicine cabinet in
    your comfortable home but some other
    harsher step out of your tired covered

    wagon onto the hard dirt to consider
    a stable frontier structure dug out of
    a mammoth earth mound after so many
    miles and hurt cause a bit of distraction

    on occasion vile and repulsive
    to the soul you know too much folly makes
    a modern man cynical, Jim, and
    repetition of evil inures the

    endless master and slave slave and master
    master and slave relationship wouldn’t you
    want to end the interminable
    mistakes of history and finally get

    your white fingers dirty toughen your soft
    hands and dig yourself a practical mud
    hut to climb in and live permanently
    underneath the wretched recurrence of

    your history and roll a snug round stone
    over the open mouth and scribble
    prophecy on the ground until your welcome
    death and the good Lord’s resurrection day?
