WHO ARE THEY, by            
First Line: Who are they
Last Line: A germ of pain -- a sample of life's cross-section.


Who are they,
These who would probe our souls
And, delving deep down,
Find so little there to witness for us?

What can they know
Of you or me;
Of loosing ecstasy and losing love?

Can they be our friends?
Well, so they say and have us believing.

Rather are they enemies
Seeking something and believing it there;
Finding it not, but planting it
Where suddenly it's revealed:
A germ of pain -- a sample of life's cross-section.
