Give us this day our daily bread Eternally fed in wombs Entombed in holy rooms Where ovum in oven rise With the breath of life And genetic keys are recipes To what we be Give us this day our daily bread Words authored by mother tongues wed Beams of light Flight of ships Holy waters seas-of-men Sail and swim ashore and Bring forth trees of life Give us this day our daily bread Posterity for heredity said Give light for lives For blood in bone made wise Toned by life Fed eyes and ears To hear and fear no one Eat for strength everyday Earth water winds and sun and Give us this day our daily bread We carry the sacred bowls and are fed The rain bows be us The breath of life seize us And gives us this day Our daily bread Bread of heaven, bread of heaven Feed us ‘til we want no more!
