Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

myth of more

26 February 2014

 

 

Remember when we first heard

the myth of more, whispered by the serpent?

Desire we could not ignore,

the ultimate wish fulfillment —

“You will be like …”

Deceived, half-truths disguised,

and suddenly enough was not.

We shifted blame,

all for the knowledge of

what we didn’t even know

we were missing.

Some myths never die.
