The Storytellers

Turn the final page.
The chapter’s at an end.
Close the book forever.
Put it on the shelf.

Ask me no more questions.
I’ve told you all I know.
The wisdom in their story
tells you where to go.
It points to better living
and follows a chosen path
where we are just a legend,
the ancients of the past.

So take heed of their story.
For it’s not so often read.
It’s a gift bestowed upon you
which tells you where to tread.
They’ve laid a shiny altar
and offer all they know.
The future’s at your mercy
and they’re asking you to go.

1973, February
