Redundancies - Samantha Terrell

That a thing's been done

A million times

Shouldn't prove it useless.

Does that a bird

Predictably searches

For worms after the rain,

Thus mean,

It's not a valuable activity?

Is it not worthwhile

To teach its young the same?

Seeking

Uniqueness

For the sake of itself

Seems vain.

So, we must wash each day

If we wish to be clean.

And, we will speak the truth

A million times

And never find it worthless.
