Everything the light touches
Belongs to the light
Everything the rain drenches
Belongs to the rain
Everywhere the water flows
Belongs to the water
And everywhere the breeze blows
Belongs to the breeze
From sea to shining sea what’s more
Does not confine the land
But only shows
That everywhere the sea goes
There’s another shore

for the dverse prompt of 5/25/21: iconic movie quotes; this one is from The Lion King “Everything the light touches is ours” which has always bothered me as a concept we should not be teaching children.

    • That everything the light touches line form The Lion King triggered discussions on the evils of monarchy and colonialism in my house when my kids were little. Your prompt allowed me to set the record straight.
