Camels Kissing


I wish I could carry

Some of your load

The tent or the food

As we trudge down this road


Your boots or your packs

The water or saddle

To give you time away

From this sand blown battle


Just 5 minutes would do

To give you some peace

With only your rose

And the chance just to breathe


I lack money for donkeys

Or a mule to give peace

To lighten the weight

You so desperately need


We travel together

In this cold desert wind

Both so haggard

And in need of some sin


And yet we march on

To the glorious pool

Hoping it’s there

Respite and water cool


To sit by the pool

And rest and regroup

Two camels kissing

Before our journey renews
