The poet asks if it was worse time
Than what ? diving into the wreck
She would ask for a world change.

We ask is it better times than then.
Than what? driving towards wreck,
We would not ask for word change.

Because what are words but world,
The world unchanged ,for better or
For worse , in church and bedroom.

Good times are words for  change
Like words they come in the night .
You hardly see them come and go.
