Wise Turtle

The turtle stands in wait, 

Until he hands the parchment over, 

He says to Lucifer, 

You better not wait forever, 

Because land and things, 

Destroy your reign, 

The fleeting song, 

Is your everything. 

But your master yields a twanging bow, 

The timeless ever after, 

The singing arrow flies towards, 

That which evades your capture, 

For years and without time, 

You chase those speeding things,

Give it up, 

Forget your ghost, 

Go for what you could.

But the sum of it all, 

It is a blistering tune, 

The sound that fills every room,

What else can you hang,

Your own life on, 

If you succeed, 

In that one, evasive thing.

Da dum da dum da dum dum, 

Da dum da dum da dum dum,
