Ray Boorman



We once burnt witches at the stake, how ignorant and cruel we were then,

we also thought that the world was flat, how foolish does that seem to us now?

Yet we were happy to follow like sheep, perhaps influenced by our elders and betters,

but an opinion is an opinion, one of which we all have, a free thought that we all possess

whether it be right or wrong, a thought that makes sense to us alone, putting our conscience at ease,

a process that makes us the individuals that we are, unless swayed by another.
