The Essence of Man

The cockcrow again
To break a new day.
The way a chick 
Breaks forth from
A newly hatched egg.

Life is the Morningstar
That shines forever.
The same river 
That went this way now
Will soon be returning
To go the other way.

Life is a song
We already know.

Man is the song
We shall learn 
And unlearn forever.
Man is the slippery catfish
You cannot freely grip.

Man bites like a wolf
And sting like a bee.
His heart is no more
In his left or right breast.
It is probably in-between
His thighs now.

And so we go on
In life trying
To marry it to man.
