Ever shifting sand
Fights not the swirling torrents
Of the raging tide.
Sand and tide together dance,
Ever changing yet unmarred.

Poor foolish monkey,
Reaching for light the river.
Why is the moon wet?
More foolish yet the poor fool
Who does not think to question.

They try to define
Themselves by rules of a game,
While prating of dreams.
What rule can ever define
Whose dream is more "right" than whose?
