Let The Air In Let Us See You - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

they say
open the door
let the air in
let us see you

and you ask
if 'i open the door
light comes in
and i get burned'

you have not seen
light ever

open the door
they insist
light can make
you powerful
we have light and
we rule the world

and so he opens
the door and they
rule the world
and he becomes
their slave
and they laugh
at him and he dies
and they take his
cave & give
him his

and they pray
that there be more
like him

he should have
known better
light can be
and they that promise
the freedom in light
can be excellent
