Yes, attributed to Shannon

Ha Ha, Ha!
We change the world like anchors
Forgotten and submersed
In the muck of fruitless time…

Ha Ha, Yeah!
Remember when we were young
And we shouldered our years
Like wings?…


And we blew the doors of perception
Off their hinges
Because our gods had no limits

We took to the air like
Demons of Glory
And found ourselves once more
Where anything was possible…

Where Everything was possible…
Do you?…

Ha Ha
Ha Ha Yeah!

Back Then!

Diffused in a light so bright
That even the mind's eye dilated
To an oblivious oblivion…

…and there we stood
Not casting a shadow…


The power of the unknown
Beget au naturel
And beauty obtained through chaos;
The potential of which
Truly made known…

Ha Ha, Yeah!
Lower me into the grave
And I laugh maniacally
All the way
Because I remember
And memory-it saves…

…and memory it saves…

memory saves
prefer that to "Jesus Saves!" as a slogan at any rate, and only 'cause of the slight pun, but for the mighty- but often forgotten, especially by me- truth: OF COURSE memory saves, what else is it there for? took your poem to remind me, and for that I thank you…

thanks to for the pricelessness of “In the muck of fruitless time…” wish I’d written that, glad at least to have had a hand in inspiring whole...

and thanks again, for the memories ;)

and here's some irony...
i don't even really remember writing this... i think i wrote it thursday night after coming home from the bar in a drunken stupor. I do like the idea of a concept (or anti-concept) termed 'futilism' by shannons poem the other day, definitely the footings of this one- recalling the synchronicity of innocence and a lack of the snare that is 'knowledge'... you know, a futile attempt at obtainig knowledge, like 'thou shalt not eat of that tree'... a curse of the Elohim- 'the more knowledge the more grief'... recalling days when things didn't necessarily need know, something like that- thanks for checking this one out.
