The Kite and The Hawk
Man is no longer alone in the universe! The day I found the hieroglyphic formula For happiness for all mankind I had to promise to give it away. It is we have to find a way For everyone to have one more of something Than your neighbor has For you--here is a dollar! And for you, I feel warm brotherhood And love intense Beyond what anyone has ever felt before. You didn't think I'm going around And giving everybody money? For me The syllable of antique power To shift the Light above Enough to cast the second or third shadow The Grand Prize In the lottery of loneliness.
