Now maybe one time I used an Ouija board
And I never learned to make a B flat chord
So I got a double headed snake tattoo
I love Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu
And the action and the motion of a roulette wheel
And a woman walking away in a pair of high heels Now once I drew an inside straight flush

And I wished I could sing like Otis Rush
The truth of the matter is I really can’t sing
But I can quote Martin Luther King
His words are stronger than angel dust is
“The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice”

Ray Wylie Hubbard “New Year’s Eve at the Gates of Hell”
