We walk along a line between two worlds,
With our right feet in the one with ideals,
Which are real in this world of ideas.
Blessed it is, with compassion to feel,
And plenty of causes for Robin Hood.
But with our left feet we walk in the world
Of physical reality, with rules
To catch us too close to the edge, like fools.
Even if you did your best to do good,
In that world Robin Hood is still a thief,
And often times ends up paying with grief.
Find your consolation in this: to see
Yourself, and of a sound conscience to be!
In that world, no one may have everything;
Sooner or later, sacrifice must come.
Even the best of us get overcome
By stresses which corrupt the soundest mind,
And cause good people to become unkind.
How many of us are saints? Nearly none,
And even they fall short of perfection.
So, let us keep our right halves in this realm
With ideals and march on, not overwhelmed!
