Pilgrims Progress (Won’t You?)

I’m pretty tired of pilgrims,
(even though I do like the occasional buckle on shoes).
But they’ve worn out their welcome
(AGAIN).
I’d like to put a new sign next to the Statue of Liberty,
One that doesn’t face out but IN:

Take your tired gods, your narrow thinking, your silent (and not so silent) judgment to The Somewhere Else (Not Here). We’re trying to do something different here. Thinking, for starters. DREAMERS wanted. Others need not apply.

And you can take your scarlet letters with you,
From the A all the way to the Z.
(But I’m keeping the shoes.)
