dear child

Dear child

I want to teach you to love

Rubbing my scruffy beard

Wizened by age time and worry

Oh boy oh boy

I want to sing you that song tonight

Making you whole

Cause I only just wanted to be whole

You know

Humanity I do love you

I know what ee said about hating humanity

Cause I understand that too

But tonite I just want to sing

Singsingsing into bluehaze

Into blue haze of smoke screened room

Where we all join hands

Unto new genre of hopeloveunity

Where dignitys grace is making her presence felt

As eloquent as a shaker table.
