Sometimes it is hard to deal with all
The details, all the rules,
Because you just want to get to
The top, and who needs mules?
Or maybe you haven’t taken your medicine
And you’ve left some spotted ampoules,
Or maybe the two are mixed together
And you cannot catch the molecules.
So you need an acupuncturist for one
And an herbalist for the other, dragon bones
And mugwort at cross-purposes,
Accept the needles and the cones,
Climb to the lookout point, when
You get a call, you can see the globe
Curve, and you’re needed to come
To the lobby to pacify Job.
