Free flow, fools gods

MICHAEL DOM

“A

King

May move

A man”

But

Only fools and gods

Could accept the odds

Doubt

That the future to be written

Is in the hands now writing

 

This

For tomorrows children will erase our inking

With the legitimacy of their own thinking

Seek

Where we are blind

They will soon find

Out

That the dreams we now offer

Do not satisfy their coffer

More

That is left here for their undoing,

Or less

That is written than what’s left unsaid.
