let’s build a new one

April 18, 2016

let’s build a new one
let’s start from scratch
let’s throw away the manuals
and work from first principles

let’s begin in hope
and proceed with persistence,
and trust in our strength and wisdom

let’s make good appointments and
reward good works

let’s agree and disagree
and everything in between

we will be fair
and reasonable
and open and free

and we will build a new on

we will remember
what led us to this moment
and we will forget to strive for perfection

we will raid the archive
for advice
and we will consider suggestions
both tested and untested

we will admit
when we are wrong
and we will not be ashamed

and we will build a new one

let’s throw it all out
and start again

let’s find the fundamental fixities
that allow enough for flexibility
where necessary

and we will build a new one

and we will start soon,
we promise ourselves,
we will start soon
