"The Light Pool (2019 A.D.)" - New Myth #100

The village children are gathered by the north end of market street
Holding hands and laughing - sandwiches'in'backpacks
For their archetypical trek to the Light Pool

* * * * * * *

They believed that they were travelling to another world
not one of oil and lust, but of love and sharing
Their parents trembled with an unknown gut ripping raw faith and sunken eyes

The Banana cartel just finished them off
stabbing their hearts and burning their down crops for a "market correction"
A candy coated aerial bombardment of red hot pesticides and dripping black greed

The juggle and its "forever" mythos was sautéed into man-made rock
The universal story, a common spirituality; singed, black, lost

* * * * * * *

Two by two, into the misty land at the aquatic ark
The children open their eyes and slip into the cool beyond
Merging with the guiding spirits and their infinite home
