THE SONG OF MY BECOMING BY JOHN FLYNN


I AM BARRELS OF MONKEYS
BEVIES OF LARKS
KINDLES OF KITTENS AND
AND GAMS OF SHARKS AND
EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE
EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE

 

I AM PODS OF DOLPHINS
GAGGLES OF GEESE
PRIDES OF LIONS
AND ALONG WITH THESE I'M
EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE
EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE

LIKE SOME BUDHIST HOT DOG VENDOR
THIS OLD TUNE I'M STRUMMING
MAKES ME ONE WITH EVERYTHING
THE UNIVERSE IS HUMMING
THE SONG OF MY BECOMING


CONVOCATIONS OF EAGLES
CHARMS OF MAGPIES
TENTACLED RALLIES
OF OCTOPI AND I'M
EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE
EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE

I AM CARAVANS OF CAMELS
SCHOOLS OF FISH
MURDERS OF CROWS
AND ALONG WITH ALL THIS I AM
EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE
EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE

LIKE SOME BUDHIST HOT DOG VENDOR
THIS OLD TUNE I'M STRUMMING
MAKES ME ONE WITH EVERYTHING
THE UNIVERSE IS HUMMING
THE SONG OF MY BECOMING


ROCKS AND FLOWERS WIND AND WATER
GALAXIES AT PLAY
BOUNDLESS INCARNATIONS DWELL INSIDE MY DNA
HEY, HEY, HEY


 

I AM QUIVERS OF COBRAS
PARLIAMENTS OF OWLS
ZEALS OF ZEBRAS
AND WOLF PACKS THAT HOWL AND IíM
EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE
EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE

 

IíM UNKINDNESSES OF RAVENS
GAZES OF RACCOONS
WISDOMS OF WOMBATS
ASYLUMS OF LOONS YEAH AND
EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE
EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE I AM

EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE

EVERY KIND OF PEOPLE TOO
