In sooth, I come here sadly, 
not trembling, not against my will, 
hoping you will set the record straight. 
You can, you know, in a minute 
if the wind is right and no felon intervenes. 

And we sit and you tell me how crazy I am. 
I shall petition the other board members 
but am afraid nothing will ever come right. 
It has been going on too long for this to happen, 
yet it was right to go, to go on as it did, 
even if there was a strangeness in the rightness 
that no one can see now. They see the night
