in but a dream

in but a dream

quietly listening
for the bell to ring
not knowing
the rogues
have stolen it from the steeple

and the people asked
who would do such a thing
an act so unholy

the innocent idiots pondered
with a disconnected wonder
from real reality
but they knew

the Village remained asleep
for in truth
no one really wanted to awaken
and face the toil of the day
which mirrored all their yesterdays
as far as they could embracingly remember

dreams were much more comforting
and in their conscious hours
that is all they spoke of
the maybes
and the babies
of this wondrous cosmic illusion

within the compartments of mind
we manufactured
closets filled with treasures
and we take pleasure
in our fractured understandings
in seeking and peeking
taking inventory
of our vain glory
and the possibilities
and sharing
the esteem
we somehow believe we possess
in but a dream
