Thoughts

With one thought you can be a king or a pauper
Or worth no more than a rubber door-stopper;
With one thought you can fly through the sky
Or sail the high sea or forever say good-bye;
With one thought you can walk the long mile
Or smile or bury yourself in the manure pile;
With one thought you can give in to the sin
Or begin again or peck around like a stupid hen;
With one thought you can stand strong and tall
Or bend down and fall or heed the devil’s call;
With one thought you can be the idiot blinking
Or the wino stinking or the wise man thinking;
With one thought you can reform and transform
Or deform yourself or to everyone else conform;
With one thought, just one thought won…
With two you might even change the world
Into which you’ve been so rudely hurled.
