She Said Go

by Philip F De Pinto



She said go
The way you came

Before I press you to my breast
And pray you never let me go

She said go
The way you came

Before your mother
Spanned her wings
And took you father in

She said go
The way you came
Before you come in me


All this she said to me
I in turn
Swooped my face
Down to her navel

To the papoose as yet to be

Go I said
Go the way you came
Before its too late

Go the way you came
I said
Before you take on the mantle
Of fame or shame
To go along with a name


Go - go I said
The way you came
Before your mother spans her wings
And takes me in

Then it will be too late to turn back
Given the heavy load
Given that road will be blocked by an avalanche

So go
And warn all the others
Be they sons or daughters
Or something entirely nondescript
To go back the way they came

Before I kingdom come
Before she spans her wings
And takes a potential father in

Then it will be too late
Not to take on the mantle of fame or shame
To go along with a name
