Another fool I am who thinks 
he can
Pursue a dream and yet live 
as a man
I must be slow indeed to 
beat a gong
Then chase the birds 
entreating for a song.
For entrance of your  heart 
is bloody feat
I rather would have done 
without a feet
Hanging precariously out of 
And toils to bring it inside 
fate deplores.
I wish this fire got a 
final douse
But millions say I need 
another house
Within you though I 
share it now with 
Yet, won't you some day 
nestle in a home
Although a million knuckles 
knock your 
And thousand vessels 
dock by yonder shore?
How steal me honey fresh 
without a sting?
How fly me heaven straight 
without a wing?
For everything you crave 
for has a twin
That you must bring home 
too if you must 
So I embrace you with as 
a thorn
And pray some blessed day 
all get shorn.
