So what if he should simply fade away?

What if that seldom smile

Caught up with the man who rarely wore it

And hid him away from the world?

Would an eyelid bat or a shoulder shrug

Would a thought in passing spare?

Hardly! For, in an eyes down world

We stand alone in every crowd.

Silent against a wall of sound we walk

And, bereft of thought save that for self

See only what we want to see

Hear what we shall hear and close our minds.
