it has once been desired
by nobody else but a liar
for us to do what is required

no need to put on an attire
when we eventually retire
remnants white bones in fire

today is a chance to enquire
help lift out the veil higher
up from the earthy mire

brain pathways now rewire
get out that situation dire
common sense let defy her

once the truth transpire
old news begin to tire
resilience we acquire

it pays off to be a trier
when the rest still conspire
who they want to call sire
