She put the lime in the coconut, she called the doctor, woke him up,
And said, "Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?
I say, Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"
If this is the best of possible worlds, what then are the others?
― Voltaire, Candide
doctor my eyes have seen the years and the slow parade of fears
now I want to understand
I have done all that I could to see the evil and the good
will you help me if you can?
doctor my eyes, tell me what is wrong
was I unwise to leave them open for so long?
"Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul." - Edward Abbey
