    one more time

    there was this lil' white dove
    he flew through the fig leaves
    and landed by a squirrel
    he told the squirrel proudly
    "i want to take one more big splash
    into the lake before I become
    one of the greatest white doves"
    the squirrel didn't understand
    because the lake would still be there
    the lil' dove splashed
    one more big splash
    and then he flew on
    he then landed on a garage
    to find a raccoon
    he told the raccoon proudly
    "i want to eat until my belly
    is so full it's close to bust
    one more time before I become
    one of the greatest white doves"
    the raccoon didn't understand
    because the food has always been there
    the lil' dove stuffed himself
    one more time close to bust
    and the headed out again
    he then perched on a willow tree
    where he discovered an owl
    he told the owl proudly
    "I want to do something dumb
    one more time before I become
    one of the greatest white doves"
    the owl didn't understand
    because instinct was all there was
    the lil' dove released his grip
    one more time to be dumb
    and he fell from the tree and died
    before he became one
    of the greatest white doves

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
