The Lesson of the Bard

May 16, 2008
By Rebecca Bowns, Orem, UT

Songs are sung
For many things,
Yet there is a song,
That no one sings.

It is the song of deception,
Of cruel ruthless haters,
Of honesty lost,
A saga for traitors.

Tales have told
Of brave striding heroes,
Yet no tales bee found
Of those nameless zeroes.

People who never
Honestly tried,
Always dreaming, not doing,
And always behind.

Lore repeated
Again and again,
Fables of old
And sly little men,

Tell of morales and lessons
That are good for the heart.
You just have to listen
To find your true part.
