(3) Human Alchemy

Rating: 3.1
They say gold is hidden in lead,
there are those who believe so.

They get blind in the shine,
siren songs, vain flash,
traps in mortal mud.
They are impatient alchemists
who find shortcuts to nowhere.

The mystery is: Gold does exist, indeed,
But that lead which became gold,
Never knew there was gold
hidden in its nature

No matter lead or gold, when you need water, they are useless, don't label!
