“Neti neti”

Am I a goldfish in a tank?
Am I a dollar in the bank?
Am I a brick, or stone, or plank?
No, no, no.

Am I a feather in your ear?
Am I a sound you want to hear?
Am I a dutchess or a peer?
No, no, no.

Am I persistence or delay?
Am I the moon that shines by day?
Am I an actor in a play?
No, no, no.

Am I a blink that leads to sleep?
Am I a walk into the deep?
Am I a song that makes you weep?
No, no, no.

Am I a woman or a man?
Am I a dead electric fan?
Am I a burnt-out also-ran?
No, no, no.

Am I the story told to me?
Am I a slave or am I free?
Am I a whacked-out wannabe?
No, no, no.

Am I the one who plays with words?
Am I the one who hears the birds?
Am I the one who scoops the turds?
No, no, no.

Am I an idiot or sage?
Am I an angel full of rage?
Am I just working for a wage?
No, no, no.

Am I young or am I old?
Am I craven or am I bold?
But…my burger’s getting cold, so…
No, no,no.
