"Deluge" by Francis Danby

Say your prayers
And count your blessings
For there’s a reason why
We just don’t know what lies ahead
Maybe hello, maybe goodbye 
Things are happening
All around us, above us and to us
And only G-d knows why
Look above your heads
Then look to earth below
We’re suspended in a medium
Of constant ebb and flow
We are here for just an moment
And then it’s time to go
Look at one another,
Forget about the lies
We are fathers and we're mothers
Aunts, Uncles, Sisters, Brothers  
We better wise up
Because time’s running out
And we'll be caught in mid stroke
We've finally learned how to swim
    or we sink and then croak
