Must each generation’s Shangri-La turn into… ?

 

Shangri-La re-zoned…

by Raymond Nat Turner

 

Someone, please tell me how do miracle-

Workers — with onion skin thin histories, 

Bulletproof resumes — burst on the scene 

Like an Aurora Borealis? How is it they

Magically appear, leaving long, terrible 

Trails like super storm Sandy?

 

Must each generation have its own made man,

Master-teacher, messenger professor, guru,

Great leader, shepherding them to rusted tubs 

Of beverage, and eternal sleep?

Will each generation have its own Jim Jones

Leading it to Shangri-La, re-zoned Guyana?
