      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?
