In thinking of the World,
I realize it will perish.
But honestly?
Right here, right now?
I do not give a damn.

The good Prince Hamlet
led me true;
what does it matter
if I die on this day
or another—for die I must?

But no matter,
I do not wish
to know the future,
and I do not wish
to see the world collapse.
What I wish for
is a moment,
a moment of faith, passion
and good sense.
