America Needs A Shaman President

America needs a shaman president
performing a retrieval
on the soul of America

America needs a shaman president
drum in hand
raising the consciousness of Congress to be one with Earth Mother

a healer president
who travels through the underworld
to know our own human shadow

a vision quest president
willing to trust plants and animals as advisors

America needs a shaman president
who journeys to the stars for his answers

a shapeshifting president
who is a lion that fights on behalf of the people
and a flower offering love to our children

America needs a shaman president
who acknowledges all that is sacred

a rainmaker president
who knows how to dance with Earth changes and droughts
by blessing our farmlands with ceremony

America needs a shaman president
shaking rattles at Wall Street executives

a Huna president
performing hooponopono
teaching us how to speak with America’s Higher Self

a Mayan calendar president
revealing truth in ritual cycles that deepen each year
understanding that all time is layered

America needs a shaman president
dancing like a Hopi Kachina

a peace pipe president
blowing smoke at all those who make profit from war

a visionary president
who honors our ancestors in all great decisions
and plants a green world for our children

America needs a Huichol president
who sees all life as a multicolored fabric
and knows of his own imperfections

a Hopi elder president
who understands that we are the ones
we have been waiting for

a sweat lodge president
who brings the leaders of Israel and Palestine together in earth’s womb
until peace treaty ink flows out their pores

America needs a shaman president
who sings sacred songs during speeches

a beyond ordinary reality president
seeing past the phantoms of Madison Avenue and American dream

America needs a shaman president
whose heart is as light as a feather

America needs a shaman president
who consciousness is always ecstatic
