I Died Long Ago
The story remains largely unwritten
Truths are demonstrably far too painful
For the actors and to the observers
Improvising a life generally off book

so the stories became far too mundane
showcasing an existence far too ordinary
protecting those lovelies closest
by the exclusion of audiences

Do no harm
To self or other (is)
The first rule of Life Club
A survivalist manifesto of humanity

there will always be speculation about actualities
but if unspilled there is no evidence of milk
yet just because a vault is locked
does not necessarily mean wealth lies

To what lengths
For how long
What purposes are served
These are the open questions
