Bait

Waking is my fond fancy,
going to sleep as well
In the morning I feel like Tom Clancy
In the evening I'm Wilhelm Tell

Being born is a serious matter
Dying is grave as well
Either way the world seems to shatter
and perception becomes pure hell

>I'm in a jovial, pure, clear state
in this here planetary estate
How long, though, should I wait
for Jahve to take the bait?<

There's a privacy veiling this lifetime
and indeterminacy seems to rule
In the West you can hear the bells chime,
out east the Dalai sits on a stool

Some claim it's like this
Others assert something else
Some people throw you a kiss
Some are Scots, while others are Welsh

>I'm in a jovial, pure, clear state
in this here planetary estate
How long, though, should I wait
for Jahve to take the bait?<

It's all the same but definitely does differ,
diverges and splits right down the middle
Some become soft and others stiffer
Some play the accordion, others the fiddle

Some fly on high,
while others dig deep,
some soar and fly
in dream state sleep

>I'm in a jovial, pure, clear state
in this here planetary estate
How long, though, should I wait
for Jahve to take the bait?<

I keep the secrets that I desired,
from morning till' mid afternoon
My head is certainly gallantly wired
from Chanukah till' the August moon

Can't recall anything from my infancy
till' the time I could handle a spoon
I can't expect any downright clemency
now, or any time soon

>I'm in a jovial, pure, clear state
in this here planetary estate
How long, though, should I wait
for Jahve to take the bait?<

My spirit feels strong and sturdy
At Saimaa I hear the loon loom
I play kantele and hurdy-gurdy
In the Cosmos there's plenty of room

I scribble pointless lines of verse
till' I find better things to do
I praise in the morning, or maybe I curse,
then study Basho and Winnie the Pooh

>I'm in a jovial, pure, clear state
in this here planetary estate
How long, though, should I wait
for Jahve to take the bait?<
