Who sleeps tonight


searching bullets silencing

the magic of dreams

in tender moments



those fangs of hate


restful nights

like warm blood

blue water blotting?

American National Standards Institute Inc.


Abstract walls rise up, secluded

A visionary in his room

Weighs the unfolding panorama

Of pessimism.

Denunciations disappear

Like a sheet of snow from winter

Harangues my senses to smear

Impending summer’s proclamation

Splintered in contemplating that rough road

Embellished by iridescent images

They say, may be there.

Should I, then, fight or flow

With glaring demons

Who must measure me,

If dreams and desires

These walls breach?

The Greatest Showman Sheet Music
