Song is the source of wisdom. (Wisdom
Goes far down, into the crippled
Psyche.) Song is it, it’s the show,
Song is coming from the tripled
Soul, followed by a scholar
Laying out the notes. This whole
Crazy people sings (including
When it eats filet of sole).
This is your own private tune
(From your brain to your broken
Toe.) Any other thought
Involved would better be unspoken.
So special is this tune (that even
When it’s overcome, it over-
Comes [though don’t expect a prize],
So view an integrated flow—ver-
Acity from head to heel).
Optimistic hopes pervade
A stream that overflows its banks,
Along a long and strange parade.
