Here inside the doldrums
Of inhumane humanity,
So many wretched problems,
The only refuge insanity.

Millions of years of torment,
Drifting by as only a day,
Gone away in a mere moment,
All talk and nothing to say.

Nothing new under the sun,
As was written long ago.
Stars burn out and are done.
The planets come and go.

Soon mankind will not exist.
The heartache will be gone.
What remains shall persist
To seek a brand new dawn.
