The Case Against Entropy, Take 2 (or 200, or 2 million)

Castles in the air, you accuse. Don’t I know that

Yesterday was never as sweet as remembered; childhood

Nights are full of monsters and schoolyard bully fears.

Ice cream is fattening. Love is entangling. And

Charities skim off at least 98%. Be brave! Face the facts!

All dreams must die, you claim. But I pull you to me,

Laughing. Bravery, I whisper, is dreaming in spite of it all.
