Over four decades you have been on top,
A lonely star, like future men on Mars;
You have endured the probes of many a cop
And animus projections in dark bars.
But faith and trust are keys to psychic growth,
Starting with the goddess standing for your soul:
Since she’ll reveal the shadow you are loth
To integrate, but which can make you whole.
You wrote God gave you everything. It’s true –
You only need to find it, then to share
It with humanity, as one like you
Can really make a difference if you care.
I’m pleased to greet you; hope the Self you’ll know.
For then you’ll add the leaven to the dough..
Sympathy for Sir MicK
