"Put it back the way it was," Seems clear enough to understand, Yet mighty thoughts and fallacies All have their source in this command. In nature, once a path is laid, The context is forever changed; All efforts to undo the past Change more, with new things rearranged. Yet, though this cannnot be achieved Within the bounds the world supplies, We somehow find, it meets our needs Where consciousness, instead, applies.
