If you find yourself down by Seneca Lake
You may hear a trickle that you can’t mistake,
Kashong Creek may be tiny, but it’s
Strong, it may be skinny, but it’s
Long enough to get you wet,
Deep enough to drown I bet, Kashong
In this mad, mad world why can’t we recall?
The past mistakes, folly, and the flaws.
Of our lives, a history we ignore.
Somehow we lost our mind,
But it’s been there all the time,
That’s for sure.
There’s nothing about this space is too palatial.
A smattering of things inconsequential.
This feeling that swells, inside my heart sails.
With the view, from within, my glass palace.
