with mouth agape

 we lack the honest mastery of time

though calendars and tables give the shape

of power to our lives and let us ape

the feeling of authority sublime

against the forces pushing from the slime

that are true horror still there's no escape

all in the end will stand with mouth agape

and weep and then fall back from the long climb

children look up and ask for a great dad

to hold their hands and pat them on the cheeks

while looking down from his house in the sky

the adult now can't help but feel quite sad

recalling that poor child with its soiled breeks

when first it learnt the whole tale was a lie
