21 Apr


You became the flame

You carried the light

Fed to the embers,

You blazened anew

The scepter of power                                                                                     1wands

Held high in your hand.

And it spilled and it wasted as it spread all around

Was it all worth it?

The pain and the fame?

It claimed your whole life –

But you rode on a stallion

Heart drummed to the beat

Eyes to the heavens, courage in steel,

Leading the way…

Fear and death mingled in mud as they fell

On the fields where you fought,

So valiant and true.

With the cross and the shield

For the defense of mankind

Ah, Joan, your beauty was true

Your light shone within

But your actions no cure:

What ails our brothers

Isn’t just faith,

It’s love and it’s freedom

The end of all strife

The pearls of your wisdom

Float down from above,


Pearls unto swine,

Yes, the Good Word was right


Justjoan 2

Give them more love



them more wine

They will dream on, yes, and

Feed the illusion

That there is more time…
