be infinity

you tell 'em for me

you do something
like greasing caution
that damages everyone
whilst you're alive
but dies with you
that's at most
one generation shackled

but if you inventcreate
to be heard by one man every hundred years
that's one in ten billion
times all those lives to come
that's all the future enhanced

one strong line
is worth infinitely more
that all the nice forgotten
all the frightened antinew
all the fundamentalist hell destined
all their empty cups
