It came to me this morning
That if everyone was happy
Then there’d be no need for laughter
Since it’s there to balance crime;
And if everyone was blissful,
All wisdom truly treasuring,
There’d be no need for measuring,
There’d be no need for Time.
And once time was gone, and we were gods,
Why it is then, I posit,
That we’d pause to note what caused it,
And bang out our own universe
To see what comes up divine
