Way Down Here


Way down here
the sun still rises,
we get ourselves up
beneath disguises,
say good morning,
nodding hello,
knowing there's 
nowhere else
for us to go.
We have heard
it's only wise,
to keep our wits,
and tell no lies,
neither borrowers
nor lenders be
of the only thing
we give away free;
and finally someday,
when you visit me,
please don't be surprised
by what you see.
