“All that we can do to help ourselves is stay alive”

…so prescribe Peart
The wise would subscribe to this view as I see it
Not as a bribe our time to extend
But as a chance to defy what I’m meant to defend
all along
The endless abyss of existence
ever longing content
Or at least an honourable attempt
at a near approximation thereof
To fear intoxication with love for creation
and earnest desire for soul’s reformation
in a new land
Is to sneer in vexation at a mere indication that
there is something to inspire avoidance
of forming an orderly queue
And to stand about as we please
As me or as you
As whoever!
To stay alive or defy?
To try or live forever?
