How this blog was named, by a druid poet, in Tasmania, on an anti logging protest… (Poem)

The Upper Florentine (Expect a Miracle)

“This planet ain’t ever been ready for Kevin,
If I come back from the rainforest I’ll be rappin’ in Elven…”

The Upper Florentine (Expect a Miracle)Dub Poet – Synchromystickz
One Love flow, this crow’s got lyrics.Initiated Druid, Bard and Shield Knight
Of Arthur’s Warband – out in the field right.

It feels right inhaling air that’s clean,
Drinking water from a stream in Upper Florentine.

In Tasmanian rainforests I saw in a dream
Some want to pulp in to paper or saw into beams.

But rainbow warriors lean on the tallest hardwoods
With swords of truth and shields of open hearts, good.

Open Minded Intuitives, Oh Em Eyes,
Talk to narrow minded like a dentist – “open wide.”

Direct Action Volunteers – Dee Ay Vee
Believe in their hearts they belong in these trees, blatantly.

Natural disasters and industrial collapse won’t scrape ya
If ya make tha change ta live in harmony with nature.

Hope for the best or prepare for the worst
… I’ll expect a miracle.
We’ve hurt Mother Earth and we’re sharing the curse
…But One Love will win it all.
Hope for the best or prepare for the worst
… I’ll expect a miracle.
We’ve hurt Mother Earth and we’re sharing the curse
…But One Love will win it all.

If each individual knew inner peace…
Nations would know outer tolerance and acceptance AT LEAST!

Some of societys fooled but we don’t rely on the beast
Capitalism’s cannabalism and it’s servants are the feast.

Even those getting palms greased and kickbacks
Will fall through cracks in the inevitable economic collapse.

Blessed are those with a vegetable patch and close friends (Word!)
But the selfish might just have a little trouble meeting those ends.

When I speak from my heart you can’t ignore me.
We’ll transcend World War Three with World War Tree.

“The force of peace”, inner peace, is infinite
Some choose to use it through fearless action or peerless music.

Dub poetry – those keen OMIs won’t cease.
KP – now it stands for Know Peace.

KP – now it stands for Know Peace.
KP – now it stands for Know Peace.

Hope for the best or prepare for the worst
… I’ll expect a miracle.
We’ve hurt Mother Earth and we’re sharing the curse
…But One Love will win it all.
Hope for the best or prepare for the worst
… I’ll expect a miracle.
We’ve hurt Mother Earth and we’re sharing the curse
…But One Love will win it all.

We’ve got freedom, superfoods and carabenas
To get up these giant trees for superviews you couldn’t dream of…

We’re raising cash but the best things in life are free,
Sunrises over giant trees with blessings from Jah, seen?

The streets ain’t paved with gold but white quartz hippy bling
To give to friends and bredrin while blessin’ everyt’ing!

We’re raising cash and raising spiritual progress,
Some things you can’t pay for and I’m feeling SO blessed.

Hope for the best or prepare for the worst
… I’ll expect a miracle.
We’ve hurt Mother Earth and we’re sharing the curse
…But One Love will win it all.
Hope for the best or prepare for the worst
… I’ll expect a miracle.
We’ve hurt Mother Earth and we’re sharing the curse
…But One Love will win it all.
