let them ring!

"like William Blake,jumping from his death bed and singing!"
Like stories of truth for children/letting the dark in
where wild things grow in imagination
and children know them-as shadows and nightmares
and the "real"world distraction/"take your mind OFF things"
Children know-they watch us-tiny witnesses
and they hold us to account .As Yevtushenko said-
"telling lies to the young is wrong"..Abstinence
and the highest rate of teenage pregnancy.
God's love and capital punishment simultaneously
Wars on truth and literacy via censorship and tacked-on happy endings
Children's movies an abomination-false to the core  with saccharine soundtracks
Disney characters mutilated genitals-like Vatican fig leafs
This is not helpful for children or other wild animals
This is where we need those who speak of pogroms
child soldiers,abuse and violence
Speak in parables if ye wish-but do not dilute the truth
"or the children will not forgive in us
what we so readily forgave in ourselves"
