Tell

Now we have stumbled into trouble
Such as we had never expected.
Always we were able to muddle
Past or away from each obstacle.
It was as though we were protected,
But it was just a working strategy.

Now this looks like an insoluble riddle,
And if things really are connected
Then we have fallen far into trouble
And the world is not as hospitable
As we had always expected,
Or perhaps hoped, it would be.

With each doubling the problems redouble,
But our capacity has not adapted
To keep up, and we are unable,
Having found our way into trouble,
To see any way we can be protected
From our self-inflicted calamity.
