the repetition

the repetition of unlearned speech
echoes in my head
the repetition of the drum
echoes in my ears
the repetition of prayers being offered
unto a god who does not hear
echo in the air around me
the repetition of unlearned speech
echoes in my head
echoes in my head
echoes in my head...

it goes on and on
the beat of the drum
does not stop

and thus we see things through our own eyes
