Buy Me Finery For My Funeral
for Reid Mitchell
Hunt the snake like it's a dragon.
Hunt the dragon like it's a snake.
Wind brings rain to flood someone's house.
Butterflies don't dream, they fly.
The bread that is stale today
is more stale tomorrow, or in the bin.
If you have a secret, make sure
you don't know it.
A large cock signals daybreak louder.
Your friend's mole is not her blemish.
He who hits you on the face is nobler
than the one who shoots you from behind.
Third impressions are rarely reliable.
In a great storm it is better to stand still
and be carried away.
Remember a three-minute egg takes three minutes.
Love all the way, but also doubt all the way.
