Title: Analogue of the Shaman .

Magical one ,
healer and loner ,
mutterer ,
incantational ,
who can disappear
into the spirit world ,
defying time
and space ,
form twister ,
rearranger ,
scatterer of Navaho stars ,
of towering forces
of evil ,
of bright forces
of good ,
healer in ancient culture ,
mind reader ,
letter of blood ,
primal trickster ,
dealer in supernatural ,
respected sorcerer ,
wise speaker ,
soul gatherer ,
shape changer ,
rattle shaker ,
fear maker ,
sun spirit ,
animal worshipper ,
visionary ,
people leader .
When the legend dies ,
the dream dies with it .
When dreams die ,
there is no greatness ,
only a void .
And in the void
who will suffer ?
The people will suffer .
These are the people
who do not know
their own shadows .
They do not see their visions clearly .
They do not know themselves .
Someday they will stop and think ,
and see the real image ,
and the images that came before them .
And the Shaman will tell them ,
and they will agree ,
as the feathers flutter
in clouds of plains dust ,
that today ,
like anyday ,
is a good day to die.
And you will think them gone in death .
But the Shaman will hear them whispering .
We are still here .
