How were we marooned to the outer city?
they nabbed the gems we mined
then kicked in the beams we crafted
and pilfered the art we fashioned
But they could not take the songs we sang
those we forsook unwittingly
when it dawned on us
that we went wanting
for a most precious necessity
They took our books!
Except we read,
we stagger like a drunkard
across the intellectual landscape ~
