out of the abyss

nothing but silence out of the abyss
from time to time we wonder how it came
to be or why we give absence a name
we never wonder nor find it amiss
when with our peers we talk and reminisce
about the boundaries of wild and tame
without dissension and lacking all blame
how in the emptiness we find our bliss
looking at monsters is a common sport
but monsters too have eyes and they can see
into our hearts in many devious ways
against such inquiry there's no resort
we make no defence issue no decree
and go out swiftly in a sudden blaze
