nocturnal vision

if there's a chance to see beyond the wall
we ought to take it and declare our part
in matters that go to the very heart
of what we think of as our silent all
action's required we cannot simply stall
life is a rocket now and not a cart
this is not something of a complex art
there is no giant waiting in the hall
this is no savagery of natural law
nothing is evil underneath this sky
words may suffice to entertain us now
we do not fear a coming monster's claw
nor is our courage made into a lie
before the happy ones we take a bow
