BABATUNDE OLATUNJI 4.7.27-4.6.03
this one is going to take lots of trust. psc
happy birthday the greatest of all of us, the grandfather of the
drum has translated.
Amfortas, the wound of sorrow and sadness in the deep heart's core as the
Esalen indians watch you fly away on the wings of an eagle. The Grail King
the entrance into the Chapel Perilous. The dark land, the wasteland here
he has come to regenerate this land our hearts have heard the message of
unconditional love. The land needs to be redeemed by the Holy Fool,
Parsifal. 15 years on i sing this song, the same place as dick price, doug
enright, and lotusheart. this is the palace of dreams this is the palace of
nightmares, death and translation.
The Miller's tale is told by a thief, full of sound and fury and definitly
signifying something. The Signifying Monkey has come home to roost. i sing
this song of loss and innocence the Grand Father of the Rainbow is gone,
passed on, to the other side to the happy hunting Ground. This is all that
can be said we love him. endangered species we will not see his like again.
He brought us the sound of growing up in an african village, after 9/11 we
are all new yorkers after gulf II now we are all iraquis now that baba is
gone we are all africans. Please heal the earth? Take the splinter out of
your own eye, physician heal thyself!! Esalen indians hover over his soul
taking him home to heaven, the home of the orishas, now Ogun, now Obatala's
Cuts are the deepest, as we watch you go home, the music and the love you
have given us, I woke up and was walking to the whale chair and i looked up
and saw a hurt hawk circlin! g over a cliff in Big Sur, and i said to
myself. "there is the spirit of baba, fly on forever, king"
