Generational Lie

It’s hard to be

pioneering when you’re walking

in someone else’s footprints

that have faded over

time. And this petty

fallacy that each generation

is convinced it’s special,

unique and therefore legit.

But history loves to

point out that lie

in no uncertain doubts.

And every aspiring writer

should know that everything’s

been writ before, both

great, good and bad.

So pioneering only means

that it’s due time

for a change to

be accepted by the

herd chomping at your

heels. as you stand

at the gates. Waiting.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
