This started out as a dream I had this morning and turned into a meditation.

Take away hands and take away speech;
What’s within reach?
Take away hands, now, take away speech;
What’s within reach?

I looked at the looking-glass
What did I see?
I looked at the looking-glass,
It looked into me
Take away sight and take away light;
What’s within reason; who’s on tonight?
Go look in the looking-glass;
What do you see?

When you write the document,
How are you seen?
No human is corporate
Know what I mean?
Take away trust and nothing remains;
Sign on the dotted line, see who complains.
When you write the document,
What do you mean?
