By Charles Robert Lindholm 


worn out beliefs

from long, long ago

linger inside me

why, I don’t know


outgrown and old fashioned

like little boy toys

dictated thinking of

sins and of joys


worn out beliefs

on this and on that

no longer reality

like the world must be flat


worn out beliefs

I need to discard

remnants of fantasy

but changing is hard
