in a field of deep green

	in a field of deep green
	with a sky of remarkable hue
	the man in earth tones is seen
	his deep set eyes are blue

	those eyes surveyed the world
	with deep interest and intent
	many mysteries yet unfurled
	and false knowledge he is sent

	staring into the bleak distance
	wondering at some lost meaning
	analyzing life's every instance
	dissecting how society is leaning

	he lifted his arms spread wide
	overwhelmed and asking why
	questioning how we lived and died
	not knowing but wanting to try

	as a subtle reply or answer
	his world then slowly opens
	the sky falls to a dark cancer	
	he is swallowed, his will broken
