Ode to Being Homeless

Strong wind destroy our home
Many dead, tonight it could be you
Strong wind, strong wind
Many dead, tonight it could be you

And we are homeless, homeless
Moonlight sleeping on a midnight lake
Homeless, homeless
Moonlight sleeping on a midnight lake
Homeless, homeless
Moonlight sleeping on a midnight lake

-- Paul Simon


Great wealth lies in poverty,
Pure bliss in destitution,
Complete freedom though restraint,
And perfection in the ordinary.
