ideas can burst through yesterday’s chain.
Customary close-mindedness can be struck dumb
by forward thinking.
It’s chic to defy inaction—
exchange sentient words,
dissect dogmas that prefer the devil they know.
Tradition doesn’t know as many devils
as orthodoxy can lead so many to believe
to live, to grow, to feed all children
convention must try new things—
gray skirts, polka dotted pants, rainbow kilts
and repurposed evening combat boots
might be the thing to keep that old dog
enjoying lifesaving new tricks.
and do somethingfresh.
