Every pebble on the road must have a story
every bomb prone to explode must have a story
there could be no kiss without a lover's narrative
every prince within a toad must have a story
when you weed out every tale from the garden
how you're carting off that load must have a story
when the trees are gone & paper finds no echo
in the silence hides a code that has a story
figures carved upon an urn at first seem decorative
when you listen to the ode they have a story
both the senator & sandwich-maker serve life
both the pie & a-la-mode must have a story
every venture stands amid success & failure
strands of destiny forebode? each hides a story
there's an origin to every hill & river
how our histories erode involves a story
every stranger whom you meet requires your data!
doesn't software you download extract a story?
whether ludicrous or tragic most are lost!
yet each seed the farmer sowed could sprout a story
the protagonist's exploits grow incoherent?
every change of an abode conveys a story
why is Raphael enamored of old minstrelsy?
how the dying candle glowed must have a story
