Bards

Learn to tell your story well

Because

People believe the stories they hear

But

Hear fewer and fewer nowadays

Because

The campfire, the home, the village

Begot

The book, radio, television, phone…

Bought

The stories – the glories – of a few craftsmen

Until

We forgot we are storytellers ourselves

Before

“In the beginning” and “once upon a time”

Beyond

“A land far away” and “THE Word with God”

Bards

Of forgotten heroes who don’t need saving

But

Themselves make and break the world and

Betray

The notion that our names are nothing

But

The stories we’re told, merely, simply,

Because

We can’t tuck ourselves in at night.
