sickened by the drawing down of humanity's pretense
to goodness
I await my turn to leave--

there's nothing left to do
to a world so hard done by that my pride no longer
protects me from the realization

that I will also fall with these others--
nothing like disaster to teach humility to those
with no ears to hear no eyes to see no brains to think---

and in the desolate void that is creation--
no hope for any light to shine--so I put in my time and made
my mistakes and life will not let me go until

I've sung the common swan song--then I'll be free to go--
to what and where I wish I could recall...
