And the Others


Some find The Light in literature;

Others in fine art,

And some persist in being sure

The Light shines in the heart.


Some find The Light in alcohol;

Some, in the sexual spark;

Some never find The Light at all

And make do with the dark,


And one might guess that these would be

A gloomy lot indeed,

But, no, The Light they never see

They think they do not need.
