COME AND GONE

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 just a moment
All talk and nothing to say

Nothing new under the sun
Such 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 will persist
To seek a brand new dawn
