In love, in life, in war and strife Spaceswirl
No roads or rules be pre-ordained
Mankind is but a beast, and chained
To flesh and breath and mortal pain

And for the “ternal question; “why?”
Silence there, but naught reply
So it shall be, for ever more
Till sun and earth burn out their core

Unless a stranger, in the right
Will stand alone, not ‘fraid to fight
The cruelty of the ticking clock
And finally, to make it stop

Endless motion, endless movement
And as we strive for self-improvement

 Fate has us chained to endless shuffling

We watch as youth is turned to age
 Our bodies wither with decay
But when our time of death is nigh
Will we still be asking why?
