Trouble to Prevent (Reprise)


She knows Cassandra’s curse indeed
Having seen human nature from below
As almost always poor, always in need
Whom yet with high head among others go

Does she perceive potential somewhat less
Than rosy glow suffused it were within?
Straightway do others, having insight less,
To brand it paranoia swift begin

Nor come they back, afterward, to observe
That things turned out exactly in that way —
Higher opinion from them she deserve
For having suggested a better way

Still less the evidence to them present
When she hath managed trouble to prevent
