A butcher, a consultant in the IT field, a nanny, a muslim, a priest,
a politician, a hippie and an unemployed man from Leeds.
A joiner, a sales-girl and a dancer (perhaps of the exotic kind),
the group even contained a dog-walker,
and one man who’s said to read minds.
If a merry band of travelers set out on a journey on this day.
Do you think in 700 odd years
anyone would still care what they have to say?
I read that it has been some 715 years since Chaucer‘s Canterbury Tales was performed… There is something so inexplicably amazing about that, the hundreds of years his story has fascinated readers and how – even though the story is said to be based on the Decameron he managed to produce something that was so new, yet still holds its place in literature today. *sigh* I really wonder what, if anything, of what’s considered masterpieces today will survive the harsh scrutiny of tomorrow?
I will also add this as my offering to the NaPoWriMo 2012. It should be the 17th offering, but… I still think I’m doing a fair effort considering how scattered my writing has been over the past few months!
