Back Next Split Mind

I split myself
And claimed the other me
Was you
It was you that had those values
Not I
You were the one who was hungry for steak
Me for rabbit soup
Until one day I saw you eating
A whole bowlful of honey
That I became so hungry
And ate the gold and silver
Off the floor
And reported
Your outrage
To everyone.

Irwin R. Shaw - January 8th 1983
