the watchers

we are the watchers
walking among mortal men
bearing gifts of divine knowledge
and wisdom of the forbidden arts

we are the forgotten birdmen of the north
bow to the vultures that circle overhead
the vultures that carry off the dead
and fly their souls to the secrets of the stars

we are the captivated wheat
now cultivated and tamed
our megalithic stone full of abstract meaning
never to be understood or explained

we are the watchers with wings on our backs
that first cast you out
told you that you were naked
and forever left you with doubt
