1. Our Short Years

Our Short Years


Eighty short years upon this earth,

To lounge upon the art of being idle,

Whilst innocent a one will perish,

To the sound of mewling hunger.


But is it not as much a sin

The art of being over keen,

To strike the balance of being just

Between the act of doing what must,

Which must be our primary gain,

Opposed to the goldy thumb,

To keep our orbits true,

And remain rotating around the sun.


For eighty short years.
