I went down for a little while . . .
only a little while;
fell into a deep hole
with only a small aperture of light
But greatness overtook me.
I felt like Popeye
who had just swallowed a can of spinach.
Realizing this wasn’t me . . .
can’t be, won’t be, can never be;
I yelled like Tarzan,
Leaped like superman
and flew across the morning sky
like an airliner . . .
Leaving only a vaporous trail.
