Celestial Body Thinking
What does the sun see in all her heat
where fools to live and fools do meet.
She sees that all the pain and sorrow
will be on earth today and tomorrow.
And still she'll shine for thee.
What does the moon see when she's aglow
where fools don't ask so fools don't know?
She sees that night cast shadows tall
and only the wolf bays out a call.
But still she shines for thee.
Between the two they are amazed
that all the ones who sat and gazed
could believe that the earth is best.
And every day and night confessed
that we just grant them light.
No, dear humans that's not the case.
We are bodies that have to face
our fear of all the human race
that seem bent on destroying space..
But still we shine for thee.
