    Ahh ok, so many small sections possibky, thank you…ok
    The tale of Taliesin
    Come hither, let me slip you away
    ‘Neath a lonely hawthorn in the Land of the Fae
    Where the world is younger, our Past their Now
    And a man is measured by the health of his cow.

    Sit you still and listen you good
    For my tale will bring memory and truth to your blood
    Your bones will harden from dust to delight
    Ashes reform into flesh on this night
    For the words that you hear are correct and true
    Hark! I bring the Tale of Taliesin to you!

    In the land of the draig, iced fire and slate teeth
    Rise to the stars, ancient heroes beneath
    Verdent lush growth from sharp Summer rains
    Arwenian prose awed attention gains
    Our tale begins by the mirror of the skies
    Tranquility marred by sea raven`s rough cries
    Light sucking ugliness lending mothers to weep
    But hey! What is this? MY AUDIENCE ASLEEP!
    You cannot sustain your poor focussed attention
    Once devoid of your dammed electronic inventions
    Your minds are dimmed, your intelligence frail
    As you struggle to think your own memory fails
    Your instinct too deep, lack of knowledge is drastic
    All Hazelnut Wisdom is encased in cheap plastic!
    Your Truth is as raw as man`s destiny to deliver
    Ghosts of bards wide eyed weep and shiver
    The price is too high, the risk is too great
    So a Modern Taliesin challenges your hate
    A Political Bard reinvented, reborn
    Some hope that mankind sees Aquarius` new dawn
    If you fail to heed the point of this story
    Mankind will die as too Mother Earth`s glory.
