Am I Even Warm?

“The carpenters work for their crust of bread, and the tailors sew for vodka.”

It is more than possible;
It’s historically frequent
To narrowly miss insight,

To come close but pass it by,
The search passing by the tree
From which the quarry watches.

We don’t even know 
Who nearly figured it out
Until someone else does so,

And then we’re surprised
To realize in retrospect
Someone almost had it right.
