The Story Machine

The Story Machine
This is the Story Machine
It loves tragedy
And violence
And Happy Endings

And so its stories tell us
A world all out-of-kilter
At war, and in poverty
Has Happy Endings

It’s time to teach it
Conflict can be resolved
Without anger, hatred or fear
Relying on love and compassion

The true stuff of
Happy Endings
Happy Middles
Happy Beginnings

Telling a different story
