The Songline of Life - by Bob Atkinson

The Songline of Life
(c)2015 Bob Atkinson

to navigate through time
we need an anchor firm
a way to differentiate our
straightlines from our curves

knowing well what we can find
keeps us not safe and warm
we need to draw a map of time
and actions to concur

some wise men in another land
know how and where they go
by constructing songs of pointed
directions to the flow

so here, in our confused state
can we not gather wisdom
and create a songline telling us
how to encapsulate our visions?

shall we not add from each man
no matter who he is
some wisdom he knows alone
something only he can give

a man made map of action
to keep us safe and warm
no longer agitation accepted
progress becomes the norm
