Morality tales in retrospection
Sing the world into creation, again;
Reenacting the cumulative wisdom
Cultural knowledge retains,
In prose that teaches;
Rules, mores and responsibilities
Concerning complex relationships
Of original instructions.
In commonality within communities,
The oral traditions reflect;
Collective memory in the timeless narratives
Of the Storyteller.
