The World's Pearl - Poem by Drake Kinkaid

With every second that goes on its way the truth that we seek seems further away
For some an arms length to stretch
For others... Dismay
To obtain this desire
We must disclaim what is grey
This is lucid and clear, so crucial to know
And the people too high can't grasp what is low
Can't see what's been shown
Without the wine we fancy and crave
Your useless and weak
Something less than a slave
Placed right under your nose
Now anxious and concerned how to conceive and dispose
And if you find this jewel in the life we all live
The eye that sees all
Will eternally give

Got to have water to think
This is our fountain
to supply us the drink...
