she woke up
 and suddenly realized
 how deeply unhappy she had been


and rabbits force their rabbit fights
their rabbit races
 their rabbit might
and the doves and the owls know it ain't right
 yet turtles press on towards that beacon less light
towards that beacon less night
whereupon they too take flight


helplessly hopeful grinning giggling and googly eyed
open heart open mind willingly patiently

My money comes and goes

And rolls and flows and rolls and flows

Through the holes in the pockets in my clothes’

-bob dylan
