Go to your dark, quiet place
You know I've always been an illogical fellow,
because I usually wear lots of yellow,
and everyone in town thinks I'm ridiculous.
Although there is a purpose, an intent, so stupendous,
it sometimes overwhelms my thoughts of society.
It's a grand way of hearing what's being aforesaid,
by all whom have the answers to nearly every wondering head.
It's wonderful being ignored by so many pretentious citizens,
whom apparently know about forever, and also the end.
In my sixty-five-years I've never had the answers to that.
Maybe tomorrow I'll change to blue-jeans and a T-shirt.
I'll shave off most of my beard brush my hair, and flirt,
with the vanity of these all-knowing, big talkers.
I'll coyly ask many questions of these,
becoming a mocker of whom I please.
It will be fun causing those who speak forever,
and not having a clue about love or the Creator.
To me it is a blight on humanity, and society,
to listen to speakers, televisions, computers in totality...
Go to your dark, quiet space and heed your Spirit and mind.
