Maybe Dream

A Maybe Dream Summary

People think things matter.
People thing they’re right.
100 years, then nothing’s left?
Even banks will shatter.

A Maybe Dream

It’s simple,

Can’t you see?

The end embedded when it started

An event-u-al-ity.

A baby born

A seedling sprouts

A dollar held as bail.

A new idea

A maybe dream

A bank too big to fail.

Can you see

A scale of time

A depth beyond the eyes

To find a rhyme

That lasts through time

Alone among the wise.

Its simple

Can’t you see?

The end

That it all points to

Is spirit-u-al-ity
