There is nothing I know except that,
     this lifetime is just one moment &
      wishing will just leave me empty.
So you can try and live in darkness,
   but you will never shake the light.
It will greet you every morning,
   and make you more aware
   with its absence at night,
      when you are wrapped up in your blanket,
      that comfortable cocoon.
But I have seen the day of your awakening boy,
      and it's coming soon.
So go ahead and loose yourself in liquor,
      and you can praise the clouded mind,
      but it isn't what you are thinking -
            it's the course of history,
            your position in line.
You are just a piece of the puzzle,
  so I think you had better find your place.
    And don't go blaming your knowledge
       on some fruit you ate.

I just went to Half Price Books, last night, and I bought Breakfast of Champions because of your endorsement! Sadly, they didn't have any other Vonnegut books, but I'll eventually scope out Amazon used books...

I'm looking forward to reading a book that I know ahead of time will be great!

Excellent! It's *such* a good book. It's terribly unconventional, just so you're warned :)
