did we ever live gently here upon this good earth
did we ever live gently here upon this good
did we ever live gently here upon this
did we ever live gently here upon
did we ever live gently here
did we ever live gently
did we ever live
did we ever
did we

we did not
for the rare men
who did
those saints
among sinners
would never
personify us

we were born
and remain a
most ungentle
species with
our hearts
disinclined
to perfection
