New World Lessons
by Cernunnos Poetry
Age Group: Adult
21st Century Lessons
January 13, 2007
There are those among us
who preach of delusioned celebrity:
the pride; high finance; and impermanence
They worship false gods five: Technology
Hierarchy, Patriarchy, Inequality of course,
and the tyrant god called Fashion
I stand with those among us
who teach instead the lessons of the Horse:
We value high Her deep Green fertile sods
as much as Humility, Reciprocity, Authenticity
and Her most profound Compassion
These are new old world lessons
We teach to those we love and do not doubt.
So that we might be ready for new seasons
after their rich oil futures have run out...
Author's Notes: With apologies to Walt Whitman for the way I have attempted to modernize, but have certainly mangled, his powerful 19th century poem "Lessons".
