where are we going? why did we come?
I'd have stayed in heaven but the rent was too high
now I clog the by-ways of creation with the others and some
will go broke while some others get by
the Landlord is intractable He wants His due
and we'll have nothing left before He is through
unless His promise of accommodation is clear
provided it's something any of us can get near
we have nothing but futile pledges to fulfill
and have no idea whether we've paid them in full
where will we end up? we are wondering still
while our earthly estate traps us in it's unrelenting pull...
