Yet to pause
to him I said
very soon you will leave
but what will be left?
In this business you see
we must do more then eat
we must consume the beaten
before we are beat
And of future leaders
it will be said I have led
What will they then say
after I'm dead?
Did you ask me 'how'...
or, did you tell me 'why'?
If you must know the answer
please wait my reply!...
I went to the monument...
the one piercing the sky
To the top I went...
to ask the man why
You are aged I said
looking straight to the eyes
I see the good in you
why are you not wise?
Behind double doors...
so sad to behold
a man grown weary
from the soul he'd sold
To the future told
and back again
I cannot now know
what I could not have known then
Get to Work...
