How do you best express yourself?
when you are sixty-three
and you are just a little odd
and as mental as a tree
when just a mere ambitious thought
might drive you round the bend
and the rabbit that lives down a hole
announces he's your friend
How do you best reflect on life?
when yours is complicated
your thoughts and deeds examined
which can make you feel deflated
when every nook and cranny
seems to hide a secret thought
when life's a contradiction
of all that you've been taught
How do you reconcile these things?
and put them in perspective
when you cannot remember things
and are no life detective
how do you best express yourself?
if you can tell me that
maybe I can get through life
and not look like a prat.
