From the ivory tower everything looks distant
Miserable events may but keep the view constant
From the ivory tower voices below seem small
Even a roar may not reach to a tower that tall

From the ivory tower loud rumblings are sometimes procured
But nobody clearly understand what these noises actually secure
From the ivory tower out comes flashes of light often
Blinding people and luring their vision to soften

Are things of the long ago;
