Men Who Set Sail

For men who set sail and steer ships by the stars
There is no truer when than now.
Today is the way of the whens of Man
That by agreement men allow.
Choice is the wheel turned hard or held fast
Upon seasSudden perilous seas!
While men with their gods steer their ships through the night
By the stars and the light of their dreams.
