"I am the lizard king"

Every man, woman,
and child alive

should see the desert
one time before they die.

Nothing at all
for miles around,
nothing but sand and rocks
and cactus and blue sky.
Not a soul in sight.

No sirens, no car alarms,
nobody honking at you,

no madman cursing
or pissing on the streets.

You find the silence
out there.

You find the peace.

You can find God.
