once you get passed the idea that Life is eternal
and you realize there'll be no divine intercession
from some bearded togaed sandaled gent
who'll be your forever Big Daddy
the understanding of responsibility takes hold
and there all the feel-good words
are beggared beyond being listened to
because you'll still be who you are
but with no recourse but to own up and say
yeah that was my bone-headed contribution
to the misery in the earth
and I'm heartily sorry though sorry won't make
that much of a difference...it's still my bill to pay
and I still lack the funds...
