"We pass the word around; we ponder how the case is put by different people, we read the poetry; we meditate over the literature; we play the music; we change our minds; we reach an understanding. Society evolves this way, not by shouting each other down, but by the unique capacity of unique, individual human beings to comprehend each other." - Lewis Thomas

Envious and Devious

In the Whirlwind of time
these flames of life flicker
Ignite sparks of lovers' past
Like a forest fire in July
The broken crash down
When no one is to see or hear
Mountains shift and cities fall
Like an emperor on his thrown
Social suicide a political demise
Independence stifled by conformity
The service for the Masses
...at least so we are told.

"Conformity is the root of are societies demise. If we viewed everyone by their own standards and not our own, did not force our own dreams, goals and values upon others and lived our lives like the independents we are, peace could be achieved..." - Authors note 67
