A new series about slightly-off thinking.
On the other side of the lake, the people
Live in luxury;
They eat off finest china, and
They’re not like you or me
I looked across this lake for years, and
Dreamed about a day
I’d rise up from my current life and
Learn to live their way
The other side of the lake is just
A half a mile or so;
Although the swim is hard, I think
I’d really like to go
Because I weary of what’s real
And also of what’s fake;
Somehow, I think it’s different
Across the lake
The cycle of life.

Which is stubbornly a mathematical thing

One doesn’t have much to work with sometimes.
