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...
