1 High 1 Low

Throughout the ages there has always been
an epic, myth or legend, with two tiers.
A literal recount devoid of spin,
with strait-up facts, nailing the tale exact,
is only what the common monkey hears,
as he's comatose, and blind to the abstract.

The other more symbolic read is told
in terms that show an underlying cast.
These half seen elements point to the gold
of deeper truths. These truths we look to find
and join the dots, while looking past
the obvious, to virgin realms of mind.

A parable preserves the deep, profound
unchanging path to realize inner light.
The little story underneath, renowned
by limper minds, winds safely back to sleep.
Without a chute, base jumping's just not right.
Here mapless, life's a tortured lookless leap.
