ancient history

they make excuses for the way things ran
no one knew better in those dismal days
we have to take account of ancient ways
we only do the things we know we can
it's not as though there were some secret plan
to break those hearts there was no evil ban
on silence the characters in smart plays
were never literal that's the word that slays
woman and daughter the boy-child and man
truth is so simple once they were on top
and that was nature that was just the manner
that life had structured go talk to the wall
if you think you are some sort of pc cop
the rules came down from the great divine planner
all this is shouted and then comes the fall
