Havent u learnt yet
that that rules of the game
are absolutely cast in stone?

If you break the rules
The rulers
will break you.
It is not acceptable
to break the carefully constructed
house of cards
standing so proud
and tall
without a foundation
but the books say
the foundation is a million years deep
and everyone
living in the house
believes it too.

The truth is,
its not the foundation.
Its the roots
that the cards grew
over the years.
This house was built
without a foundation.
On a clean slate.

And that,
was the last clean slate
that the world has seen.

so, now that the house is broken, do we get back the clean slate?

Or is that the house is not broken yet?

Love how you put it... and hate how we fear the loosening of the grip of those roots that the house of cards grew.

Absolutely amazing.
