Sullen gods, Merry Mice

I find more joy in dirt than clouds

When my head is not so swollen

And my words are imprecise

By grace I see beyond the layered shrouds

The strangest joy comes when sullen

We are not gods! No, mice.

Anxiety is oft' the friend of pomp and pride

So humble men marry joy

And the proudest men, suicide

"Pull up your boots," they said, they lied

"Believe in you" is an ancient ploy

I found my life the day I died
