Unto Caesar

Go down

Unto Caesar Empty Unto Caesar

Post  mikeschultz on Mon Jan 28 2013, 19:02

wade the shallow seas of most souls
that scarcely wet your feet
and marvel at the moments gone
when any cared to learn
to read the books others would burn
carving our words in stone
epithets as epitaphs greet
us as taxes and tolls

render unto caesar his due
give water to dry throats
wade and swim for deeper waters
the depths testing pleasures
look beneath the surface for boats
gone from the air and dew

libraries burned words chipped away
technology rebounds
on the shore of the mankinds sea
our names marked on the air
will we read to know or not care
how they tell our story
the rhetor and writer resounds
of deeper seas at play
