The chemistry tells us

To run or to fight

We prepare our imbalances

To deal with what’s there

But where are the chemicals

That tell me to hide

Behind the closed curtain

Ignoring the knocking

A gleam, a hope

A gleam, a hope

Quiet boys, head down, no games

We drift like a boat with no mast

Chewed through and discarded 

In some forgotten night terror

The land mass ahead is dark and disturbed

But a beach fire, a glint in the eye

A gleam, a hope, the shadow of a sword

Crashed. Head down, no games, boy
