Just too late
It’s quite obvious but I think people are refusing to look.
Perhaps they don’t listen to their minds or pretend their

These risks are by them seen calculated and measured.
The economy must run even though that may cause the

Indeed that may be the gravest mistake we’ll ever make
and it maybe too late, just too late for us to see.
