The songbird sang sweetly, ‘slow down not so fast

your greed will undo you, illusions don’t last’


‘Oh you flatter yourselves, you of clever design

so processed and packaged, polished and primed’


‘Don’t you remember the simple the sane?

Or dancing between raindrops in a warm summer rain?’


‘Close your eyes and just listen, my song is for you

let’s wander the forest and imagine anew’
