escape plans

Magic.Fox tails.Houdini-tell me the one who got away
The Invisible Man.Jesus with a child via Mary Magdalene.
Krishna with his Gopis.Blue Gods and Green jungle Goddesses.
Tell me of their powers over skyscrapers(King Kong
Giants that were felled by little Davids.Epics and sagas of triumph
where Odysseus succeeds and Jason brings home the Golden Fleece
Repeat for me our tribal pasts as future victories-assured in the annals
and extolled by all who were wise in history,myths,legends-tall tales
believed by all children,adolescents,adults.Oracular spectaculars.
Ring the bells for joy endemic-that we might be worthy of our ancestors
and extend their purvey via bravery and bright actions.
There is a path to the New Waterfall-it speaks like auguries in riddles
and reveals Olde Truths in New Garments.This is such a Tale
that children will Quake with Laughter,and Split Their Sides
when told They Are Gods,and all futures will rely upon their wisdom
If they do not get away,they will be cage in school and work forever
If they do,you will never hear this story again.
