Carry on talking

IMG_3123

 

From twisted flesh and sinew

You dared to dream

To think, to see, to do

And in that doing felt

The Universe create anew

⦿

But doing dares beyond

To tell the species how

Uniquely made it is

Not for that which follows life

But simply what is now:

That mind could put an end to strife

⦿

And all, you said, of peace

Came down, at last, to this:

That talking raised us up

That talking kept us sane

That talking keeps the open door

And throws away the blame.
