Shadows Iíve welcomed,
Iíve abhorred. Who is what,
Iíve dealt with shadows,
Iíve kissed their lips,
Kissing mine. Iíve always felt
Shadows behind my
And, then, as always,
There is me, weirded
By life and studied acrimony,
By gained book-lore,
Finessed by 3-channel
Television, National Geographic,
Disney and Government,
For the Ďgoodí of the Nation.
I donít envy any job
That involves politics, because,
Thereís nothing more lonely there than
Me, except, them. My self is self-deluding,
Theirs are self-wishing, having
To abstain from a personal awareness
Because of Ďworld-divisionsí. I guess
That would be one of my
That ever-haunts meÖ
In a more positive senseÖ Look!
I am a Trinity! Unto myself!

Have a great an erudite day, Smarty Pants!
