That Thing
I can’t
‘Member
Where
It is

Or why
I am
Looking
For it

I don’t
Know when
I had
It last

Or where
I most
Often
Store it

In fact
I don’t
Know what
It is

Nor how
I know
It is
Missing

All I
Know’s that
I am
Here now

But that
My mind’s
Gone a-
Fishing
King of the Ill
I want
To know
(If you so
pleases)

If lesser
Beasts
Catch my
diseases?

I ask
Because
I am a
Human

We are
In charge
Is that not
True man?

Are there
Weasels
Who have
Measles?

Perhaps
Some oxes
Vexed by
poxes?

Or, say
A flea
who's got
The flu?

Snakes
With their aches?
Gnus
Feeling blue?
A worm with
it's own worms?
A kinked
kangaroo?

Do those low
Creatures
All feel
My pain?

Each ill and
Disorder
Of which
I complain?

Yes I’m
Only human
And just a bit
Curious

Because if
They don’t
Then I will
Be furious
View from the Solstice
The nights
Will be shorter now
As we push on
Toward the light

Let the sun
Grow strong
Let it illuminate
Cleanse, purify
Let it kill
Let the corruption
Wither and die
Let the lies
Be burned away
So we can
Start again

Just be sure
To get it all
Because the long nights
Will return
Eminently Qualified
Sadder
But wiser
But slower
But trickier
But weaker
But steadier
But unsteadier
But maturer
But older
