The Primal Bond

 
 
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be.
..”
William Wordsworth
 
 
IF only

there lay
no
chasm

twixt

rulers
and the
ruled

schoolers
and the
schooled

foolers
and the
fooled

we’d bask
again
in

a sunlit
world
 
*
 
Only tribal
forms

or

Affective Society

make(s) that
rich and
bounteous
grade

and is
our lustred
primal provenance

after which
is it
all

Steady State
Devolution

 
*
 
It is this
Great Regress

will
end All
Human Life

on the planet

in not so
distal future
 
*
 
Only in the
heaving human
heart

do the healing
zephyrs
start

beyond lies
only arid
sand

this
Tundra
Of our (warring)
Wasteland

 
*
 

Primal Affections
bound us
together

as Adam delved
and Eve
span

in cloister
and consanguined
clan

Modern Disaffections
debauch
Nature’s Plan

such the
(sad) and
simple Story

of much
misprisioned
misguided
(wo)Man
