Poem, "Most Issues"

13        Existence defined by toil in eras previous
13        Broken, scattered, lost, in an age of convenience

10        A fear of the tide of modernity,
10        Old traditions lost out to new reason

10        Fear of uncertainty, an undertow
10        To take them far from a familiar shore

10        Of the new, of knowledge they make a foe,
10        They denounce with cries of, "corrupting lore"

10        So many childish and pedantic
10        Gnashing teeth, the animals are cornered
