no other answer

another kind of darkness in the day
eyes cannot see every instance of pain
each of us waiting for the harder rain
not knowing who will each new dragon slay
far distant now from merry surf and spray
we measure things by numerary gain
all life's now complex not a thing is plain
there is no healing light of solar ray
a moment comes when lies will not suffice
we shiver in the light of summer sun
and cannot hope to feel a better heat
there's not a thing that doesn't have a price
we've hardly started and yet we are done
now every hopeful smile will see defeat
