In Safeland perfect calm
whips into a blinding storm,
the shimmering oasis
a vision stillborn.

No escaping the consequence
of what we do with the years.
No refuge from our fears,
in Safeland.
We try to meet the requirements,
of a gold watch retirement,
though we've scrimped and saved
all we get is an epitaph engraved
at the borders of Safeland. >>
