Camping Outside Helena

Early Beethoven, the Eroica say.
The timpani crashes announcing
Napolean can still save us all.
The vets coming back from
the good war, the GI bill.
Build cars in Detroit, the UAW,
you could still buy a house.
Wall Street doesn’t own everything.
Your body hasn’t become
a commodity. First coffee
by the dawn fire.
Mortality, but not yet.
