A numbered language
and a leveled lens,
aimed at the dark heavens,
were meant to send
the points of white and yellow light
into a spin.

I was too young to tell
the world was well along.

And while the children sing
of wisdom seen
throughout the history
of crook and king,
we’ll pour the wine
and plan to try and do the same.

I will never keep you out.
I’ll never let this cold house
keep you down.

This foolish enterprise
should come as no surprise to you,
we’ve filled these halls
with our darkened thoughts.

And all we’ll ever need
is courage to come clean again,
just like the state of the elements.

And heaven knows
just how this hell can grow,
like a single-cell,
it leaves us reaching
for the nearest switch to turn.

And we can curse the light,
or move with time for once.
