Portrait of the Artist as a Lone Tree
The Elijah plan
Now every man has causes he supports,
and thinks that if he only had his day
while others heard the all-important thoughts
that spout from out his mouth, he’d have his way.
But if you take the words from out a man,
until there’s really nothing left to say -
then mine would be the old Elijah plan,
and I would change all Israel in a day.
