Just an explanation, concluded.

Yesterday, I heard Greatness calling.

But it was actually asking, "Who are you?!?"

I thought for sure my star was rising

But it was held to the earth by mortal glue.

The glue is a blending of wanton lies

And mixed with irrational wistful need

It seldom fails when self applied

And sticks according to greed.


So I drudged along on my arduous road

Just waiting for the end to find me.

I tried my best to help it along

But that wasn't meant to be.

Then I concluded, “I have an unfinished task!”

The vague particulars I do not know.

But whatever it is, --- I hope it is soon

'cause my soul has an itch-in to go.
