The Second Dream


They sat around me
In semi-darkness.
“What,” I yelled,
“Why am I here?”
“You think you’re so
Lilly pure.  You aren’t”!
A voice rumbled in the back.

“I think no such thing,” I yelled!
“And now she’s dying,
The voice went on.  “I did
Everything I could,” I cried.   
“Oh, everything”?  “I don’t
Know everything, I said
More quietly.  “Some people

Think you think you do.                   
“I can’t help that,” I whimpered.
“You can’t help anything,”
The voice said and dropped
An octave.  “I’ve got to get back,”
I said.  “She needs me.”  “Oh yeah,”
The voice sneered?  “For what?”
