“Big Head”


Never treat others with scorn
Your’e only here ‘cause you were born’
Although your’e way up
You may not stay up
Stop tooting your horn
Most of the wealth that you possess
Got, on the luck of success.
On friendship you should never frown
You’ll need those same friends on the weary way down.
So get a cap that fits you
Not one that won’t fit a swollen head,
And don’t ignore old friends around you
And fill their hearts with painful dread;
Remember greater people than you
Fall at the wayside.
A reminder to an ACTOR.

A reminder to an ACTOR.

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
