not simple cowards

truth is we're afraid of both night and sun
the terrors that have hold of us won't go
to sleep either at midnight or noon for no
good reason we scream daily for a gun
to shoot the ghosts and even though one
second's careful thought however slow
would clear our minds there's not a flow
of fresh ideas the time for that is done
not for us here the simple direct facts
our minds are not the sort that think
much better to have all our answers pat
that way we can't be blamed for any acts
we won't ever be driven to the brink
and all we know will be simple and flat
