If my head was a kaleidoscope,
My mind it would disclose,
It’s images, some dark, some light,
If you stared right up my nose.
What wonders would you likely see?
What secrets would you find?
It would show you my darkest thoughts,
The times I’d been unkind.
And those times when I’d been really good,
They’d show up as a spray
A glorious eruption of golden fireworks
A coloured light display.
You might see my Ego sitting there,
In a grand and regal pose.
Or my conscience whispering carefully,
Affecting each decision that I chose.
But alas this is not at all the case,
You cannot read my mind,
And If you should stare right up my nose,
Only bogeys you would find.
