No. 11: SONG (Lady Blanche)
"Come mighty Must!"

Lady Blanche.

Come mighty Must!
Inevitable Shall!
In thee I trust.
Time weaves my coronal!
Go mocking Is!
Go disappointing Was!
That I am this
Ye are the cursed cause!
Ye are the cursed cause!
Yet humble second shall be first, I ween,
And dead and buried be the curst Has Been!

Oh weak Might Be!
Oh May, Might, Could, Would, Should!
How pow'rless ye
For evil or for good!
In ev'ry sense
Your moods I cheerless call,
Whate'er your tense
Ye are Imperfect, all!
Ye have deceiv'd the trust I've shown in ye!
Ye have deceiv'd the trust I've shown in ye!
I've shown in ye!
The Mighty Must alone shall be!
