The Dance

Hush! They’re playing
our song, notes strong and
defiant, self-reliant

Rugged individualist,
lone pugilist
the world.  No sense in panic–
the frantic beat is enough, don’t you think?

The floater sinks and the
sinker swims, so many sins, so little
The mind is not the monster, nor
the hero in the heavens. News at Eleven;
breaking story: how much more we gonna take
before the dam breaks?

Hush! They’re playing our song…

…And the dance goes on
