I’D RATHER BE

 

I’d rather be a handful of ashes

than a truckload of dust.

 

I’d rather be unknown

Than be a big bronze bust.

 

I’d rather be a blazing comet

Than a chilly moon.

 

I’d rather be a mountain lake

Than a city lagoon.

 

I’d rather be summer shower

Than a mighty monsoon.

 

I’d rather be too late

Than too soon.

 

 

I’d rather be a spermatozoon

Than a spittoon.

 

 

I’d rather be a knife

Than a spoon.

 

I’d rather be a sleep

Than a swoon.

 

But of all the things I’d rather be

I’d rather be with you.
