There are far too many rules .. .


beggars banquet


We want you to be free
  to begin writing poetry
take walks in the park
  in this brave new world
which gets smaller every day
  yet that acrimonious smell
it is a stench overpowering
  it takes your breath away
there are far too many rules
  a rule for this, a rule for that
society originally decided
  to design laws and customs
there are far too many rules
  for our safety anyway
in our emerging new society
  the old learn from the new
the benefit of experience
is now effectively negated
Adam talks to Eve, Eve sleeps
  from her rib Adam then arrives
it is subjective what you think
  and what you feel is not real
what you hear and see you believe
  unless you believe it is a lie
or believe in a lie even while
  you can see it with your own eyes
there are far too many rules
  we are herded, cajoled, rodeoed
extend your mind, think sideways
quantam physics is a scientific theory
I look at nature around me every day
but does nature look at me at all
  now that I have two free tickets
for a Mahler symphony I like
I begin again each day walking free
eat at a seat at the beggar’s banquet
