Idealism boards its boat
and sails out to the ocean
and its middle reach.
Out as far as it will dare
it takes its detached opportunity
to yell its prayers
back at the beach.
"Wouldn't it be better,
if things were just [x] way?"
"The problem is that we're [here]
when we should be [there]."
Both bare and shoed feet
fist up the sand
shout, shout back --
They shout back,
"In the mid, your world is gold.
Here on the land, everyone's stomping toes.
On purpose. On accident. It happens.
**** happens. As far as living goes,
reality just is. So, sink with your conviction.
We challenge form, train adaptability.
Super humans laughing up from the tar.
We've come so far. We've come so very far.
It's still nothing."
