How Many Times This Lie - Poem by Jesse Dixon

A star fell out of the sky,
and hit the head of a fish in the sea.

The fish came out of the water,
he grew hands and feet and became a man.

The man died in sin,
so his bones grew wings and headed for the sky.

The wings couldn't become a star again,
so the sky fell and it all started again.
