round up
round down
wound up
and ground
down
it can seem
like a 
terrible
dream

    make a 
     wish 
      knowing
       it cant go
        on like
         this

    mal  society fails
    all
    toss a penny
    and pray
    before it falls
we wont slip under
                      the sickle

this may not be hell
      but all is not
            WELL
