Daily Prompt: Legend

Legend has it they make

up these stories to coerce

To control

To compel

Us

Like puppets on a string

Performing for our

Pennies

To earn them

Their gold

In exchange

For another story

To be told

It never gets old.

To the stories we cling

So the blind man can sing

About what has been

And what hangs

On the

Horizon.
