Bandaids

We can put bandaids across our history, and pretend it didn’t happen. We can tell a completely different story, and pay others to stand there clapping. We can have new books written, doctor photos, and deny the truth until we die. But the stones themselves will cry out, and the clouds will fall from the sky. For our history is rooted in the slumps of elderly backs, the complete lack of trust for the powers that be. And what the corporate stories lack, is exactly what binds them to me. Too many letters have been written. Too many lives have been touched. Too many truths have too long remained hidden, to the masses who miss them so much. Everything will be known for a time. Everything brought to light of day. The singers will sing, the poets will rhyme, and together we will light the way.
