“The capital-T truth is about life BEFORE death. It is about the real value of a real education, which has almost nothing to do with knowledge, and everything to do with simple awareness; awareness of what is so real and essential, so hidden in plain sight all around us, all the time, that we have to keep reminding ourselves over and over: this is water. This is water.”

Excuse me Mr. President, could you give me a hand?
I’m lost, confused, and really it I cannot stand.
Why are you in charge Sir? Men like you are so so bad.
I don’t understand why politicians say they are helping! For it only makes me mad!
It’s not like anyone running against you is better. It’s really all the same!
You attack each other, holler, even ruin his or her name.
Why can’t a decent man, who plays a fair game
Be a politician and simply never lose his aim.
Is it really so hard for you not to attack each other, not to have affairs,
Not to lie and cheat, not to make everyone aware?
Excuse me Mr. President could you give me a hand?
Don’t be the usual scum and just care about our land.
