Born at mid-day, the last of my kin
A fragile son, already a has-been
Never a life so routine as mine
Perhaps I am the last of my kind
Slapped by the wind’s desolate touch

For life is but a moment preset to end
With my feet up and back upon a bed
All the papers and secrets left behind to rot
Will leave the rest of you to figure out what you got

We’re all left alone on our final slab

Until then, I’m gonna put my tap shoes on like ol’ Ahab
Everyday is a whale hunt with stone in hand
