We Were Taught A Different Thing, by pd lyons

We were taught a different thing
That we were born of the earth
Not exiled to dominion it

Ghosts gods and goddesses
Whispered wisdom into our dreams

Even the one god occasionally broke solitude
Visiting psychedelic splendour

When I walked along the shore
Ocean sang across universal themes for me
Now, even among the breakers ominous silence

Children no longer believe in fairies
Unimpressed with Arthur Alice Robin
Unconcerned even with binary myths
Rather strive and study for employment
Programs test scores and statistics
Lulled electronic sheep
