for the moment

flying pigs have filled the sky
and the moon has turned dark blue
for the moment, it appears
i can put my faith in you

for the moment, i’ll believe
you intend just as you say
you can do what you have promised
no excuses, no delay

what a thrill, to see you working
getting something done so well
as these frozen lakes of sulfur
cool the fires here in hell

what extraordinary visions
fill my disillusioned eyes
as the sun sets in the east
and you’ve suddenly grown wise

such things, i have imagined
though, in truth, they’re too extreme
to expect they’ll come to pass
anywhere but in a dream
