by Arthur O'Shaughnessy [1844-1881]
We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.
With wonderful deathless ditties
We build up the world's great cities,
And out of a fabulous story
We fashion an empire's glory:
One man with a dream, at pleasure,
Shall go forth and conquer a crown;
And three with a new song's measure
Can trample an empire down.
We, in the ages lying
In the buried past of the earth,
Built Nineveh with our sighing,
And Babel itself with our mirth;
And o'erthrew them with prophesying
To the old of the new world's worth;
For each age is a dream that is dying,
Or one that is coming to birth.

Anybody remember this old Queen song?
Son And Daughter
I want you...
Tried to be a son and daughter rolled into one
You said you'd equal any man for having your fun
Now didn't you feel surprised to find
The cap just didn't fit, The world expects a man
To buckle down and to shovel shit, what'll you do for loving
When it's only just begun?, I want you to be a woman
Tried to be a teacher and a fisher of men
An equal people preacher, will you lead us all the same?
Well I traveled all round the world, a brand new word for day
Watching the time mustn't linger behind, pardon me I have to get away
What'll you think of heaven, if it's back from where you came?
I want you to be a woman, I want you to be a woman yeah

Poetry good poetry is truth well told and an economy of words...Good stuff lads....there was a Rush (going back a bit to my teen years) a song about oak trees and the others getting them cut down to be "equal "with the others or something...feminism is a disease the Doc is working on a cure. Symptoms include compulsive liar, constant aggression, allergic to logic, often affects women who are fat with short hair and big earings, but can be normal looking.
Reason tablets three taken daily. If the sufferer displays shaming tactics double the dose. Remarkably the illness disappears in disaster zones.
