Deja Vu's Recital
Yesterday's persistent plethora of voices
Determined to influence immediate choices,
A future uncertain if unheard a la nonce,
Will urge the virtue of virtual renaissance.
History's a teacher, a melange of habits,
The footprints of us all, pied-pipered wild rabbits
Marching to a garden of fortunate good luck
Scampering to and fro, rude rodents run amok.
But teachers who fear a recital of the past
Are doomed to deja vu if habit's asked to last,
Forged irons hammered hot by events long passe,
Not in tune with exploits apropos to the day.
Our heroes for this age, from the old to the new,
With wisdom wend their way, swift to add what is true,
While mixtures of the two, prune away lifeless form,
That tomorrow, new fruit in the bud be the norm.
