The Near Dearly Departed

Through the wiles of nature and the hand of fate
we finish what we started
You take your chances and you leave behind
the near dearly departed

World of wonders on a silver screen
on a starry night in a childhood dream
No use dwelling on what might have been
or otherwise pretending
Claiming as a victim of circumstance
on a wayward trek in a loner's trance
You can't give living a second glance
waiting for the ending

(Rawlins Cross - The Near Dearly Departed)

Church somewhere in Lower Saxony, Germany.
December 2010.

A new sculpture of Genghis Khan has been unveiled in London. It was only a few weeks ago that I heard a story that there were roughly 16 million descendants of Genghis Khan living today (click here to read the article). What remains a much discussed topic among archaeologists is the location of his final resting place.

Have a nice day.
