2.933 : 11/22/07 : Give Thanks for Speed

Give thanks for speed
‘cause life is short
there are no second chances
no mission to abort
so when the great hammer
is descending
there are only two options:
speed or ending
give thanks to God
for the future obscured
I can’t imagine all the inward
maladies it cured
deliver me from the curse
of second sight
and I’ll sacrifice my future
on your altar every night
but I’ve got no thanks
for being born to the majority
for the status quo
or the presence of authority
because the seeming blessing
of the present convention
is the antithesis of speed
and other virtues I could mention
