The Folly of Control

We are passengers, crew, captain and ship
We sail on unknown oceans
We set our sights on one land
And arrive in another
What strange wind blew us?
Were we off course
Or did some unknown intelligence
Guide us there?
We make plans
But there are larger forces at work
That hijack and steal our great vision
And cast it aside like an unwanted toy
So what do we do?

Friend, we must play the game anyway
But never imagine we are in control
Keep one eye forever
On whatever it is that
Really pulls the strings.
