no paradoxes here

our language hides from us a golden rule

which if we follow will guide us to bread

a simple message kept in every head

that is not taught in church nor yet in school

no one is king there is no sacred stool

let down from heaven to abolish dread

that is the fact those who don't know are dead

and those who speak will not deny the fool

never again must we accept the cause

that will lead brother to trade blow for blow

driving the weak with horror shock and pain

in dull obedience to the lower laws

when tropic birds must adapt to the snow

as in the desert comes the longed-for rain
