The Ego Pacific Railroad - Poem by G.R. Gaus
Take me along into fantasy land,
Together we'll make us proud,
Lift our self far above the rest,
Beckoning, to the passing crowd.
Wisdom and truth are not allowed.
Step right on board, don't look back,
Bring a mirror so we can see our face,
Vanity drives our deepest desires,
Every detail perfectly in place.
No room now for saving grace.
It's a one way ticket, with no return,
Think twice before you take this ride,
A weak foundation on rotting ties,
Or a warm glow, felt deep inside.
Choose wisely, who will abide.
Subtle words to be understood,
Learn well from our mistake,
An ego trip, the train for fools,
Difference between true and fake.
Freedom from bondage is at stake.
