All for Nothing

All for Nothing

 

 

They did it all for nothing, as you know.
Afterward, they made many vast excuses.
They botched the substance, then they botched the show.
They did it all for nothing — as you know
from all their hapless feints, both high and low.
What malice binds, no panic ever looses.
They did it all for nothing, as you know.
Afterward, they made many vast excuses.
