All wise, all knowing, and all dead
Do you know what people said?
When they laid you in your bed?
Omniscient and all powerful
You could heave a bowerful
Roses stemmed and sorrowful
To the tossing wave.
Have you seen without a light?
Have you heard without a fright?
Have you felt without a bite?
Tripping fancy free?
This is what they said, my friend:
You should try a different blend [brand].
