The goings on of ongoing events speak to a certainty of progression
The news, the editorials, the one-liners cracked by clever friends
Seminars by professors, philanthropists, scientists, diplomats
We give our hearts to the retired men of renown
They who have learned something, but speak of everything
Our souls are trusted to scores, self-worth subscribed to rankings
But what can we do but trust? For we must leave every stone unturned.
