A Band With No Rhythm

Rip The World In Twain
"Six-year-olds
        on the verge of turning sixteen...
remind us the world is an awesome place
        while proving that the universe is unfair."
Around humans so close to the ideal
        we find our old desires to never grow up
        validated:  Peter Pan and Jeffery the giraffe.
They stand so close to the truth
        that it leaves timeless scars.
Six-year-olds
        on the verge of turning sixteen
(so much about the world
        they will not know;
so much about themselves
        they should never know)
remind us the world is an awesome place
        while proving that the universe is unfair.
