i have a dream of hoofbeats…

i have a dream of hoofbeats pounding in the air,
a horse with wings and sword that defeats despair.

the hoofbeat and proud neigh of my lord and master-
my heart jumps a beat, then gallops even faster!

white kalki is coming to remove filth and ignorance,
and truth and justice all across the earth dispense.

tenth in line of saviors for this kali yuga age,
the purity of truth is his compassionate rage.

kalki has come to re-establish basic honesty;
what now passes for such is perfect travesty.

corporate big fist has his hand in every humble pie:
we have become devoted to the greed of our own lies.

the white horse avatar has come to fulfill our dreams;
darvish longs to ride along heart’s living stream.
