The Arrogance of Ignorance

Auguste Rodin - Fallen Caryatid Carrying Her Stone - c 1881-1981

They tied a rope around you

To pull some trees from their roots
And they pulled and pulled without care
As your wisdom and courageous years disappeared

You cried silent tears
You let out immense fears
You told them to stop
But they kept on pulling at your roots

Then something snapped away
Younger trees gave up their rounds
Older trees cried in despair
Only you saw from above their INNER fears
