The Way It Has To Be

Take it off the grandstand
Put it on the floor
Leave the melancholy meanderings for another day
Let them file away the night
Please don’t cause a stir
There’s enough nonsense to keep up with
You can’t be everything to everyone
Be satisfied with what you have, where you are
Don’t go there, just don’t
I’ll take the esoteric for you and boil it down
No troubling distressed minds with left hooks of wonder
We’ve all got time enough now for the nonsense
Don’t displace the rotting boards
We’ll collapse just fine, thank you
There’s so much yet to be undone
Who can bother
If ever there was a time
It’s not now
