Borders Are Closing
© May 5, 2008, Roy Stucky

Rings in the heavens
Spinning around.
Men in a circle
Sit on the ground.
They think if given time
Every answer will be found.

Shepherds in season
Look for the star.
Minds wrought of metal
Float in a jar.
Tried to be kings
But they didn't get far.

The borders are closing
Where others have gone.
The secret was showing
But didn't stay long.

Flowers in grass
Rise just for a day.
The more that you learn
The less that you'll say.
Ashamed that my rainbow
Could not even stay.

Orbit is broken.
Body erased.
Surrogate failure
Laid the land waste.
If Truth has been found
What have we chased?

The borders are closing
Where others have gone.
The secret was showing
But didn't stay long.
