Ancient people

it amazes me
that ancient people did not know perspective
that they followed their pharaoh
like ants into the battle of San Romano
where a cuckoo named Uccello
flew down and crushed them

that ancient people all dressed the same
they all built the same houses
and worked the same work
until a giant honey bee like an angel
crawled over their land like a Bosch monster in a cauldron

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.

  1. Beautiful post, Michael. Conformity can be a bad thing and lead people to their demise. We even see it in some parts of the world today. Thank you for posting. 🙂


    1. Thank you Cherie for your comment about conformity. The worst conformity is national political and religious conformity. But does society drive itself into a corner, searching for control over small things and becoming vulnerable to large scale events? Sorry if I’ve repeated this again the comment box is so odd to use

      1. You’re absolutely correct with that one, Michael. Because people have been conditioned not to listen to their intuition and not to protect and defend themselves.
