The Myth

In ancient times there was a myth
Of gods and kings and other sith
Who once were merely mortal men
But transformed by the writer's pen

Around the campfires tales were told
Of heroic deeds brave and bold
With each and every retelling
They have become more compelling

Starting out as just a story
With little hope of any glory
It doesn't hurt to sing and pray
Just to help it along the way

It does not have to all be true
To just create a new world view
Keep out the chaff just use the pith
And then we have a brand new myth
