Your Great Work

How often must you fail,
T'accept it's not your time?
That, p'haps it's better to do what you do,
And let lying dogs lie,

Spend your free hours on this earth at peace,
Expect no more from it,
E'en altruistic goals may be ill-planned,
If prospect's from the summit's to plummet,

If it guarantees one life's not well-lived,
Namely, the one you've got,
And there's no promise for the other ones,
Benefiting or not,
It's all your choice,
To be or not to be,
Ideally, the two goals will correspond,
So you need not claim your morality.
