Why? You hear:
:By Now Its All Been Done:
And so we get more of the same,
just spiced a bit with snark or grit.
I say to be original
is the easiest thing in the world!
You neednt do
whats Never Bin Dun –
You need only do
whats Not being done Now.
Look for things that go unnoticed,
listen for voices lost in the din,
let the buried bubble up!
Nowadays culture keeps telling the same few stories
til they become damaging myths.
Old Folklore is richer by far,
full of neglected varietals
and healing herbs!
So many voices now cynical, angry, jaded.
Where are the kind voices,
where the awonder?
