Where does it live, the face behind the face?
To know all that there is
About the face that is his.
People often haven't a clue
About their very own I.
Each of us makes his own
Best defence counsel.
Nero, apparently, thought
He was a poet,
Hitler thought that he
Would redeem the world from woe!
The mean man thinks: "I am so generous".
The shallow man: "I am profound".
Sometimes God will sigh: "I am a woman".
The worm hisses: "I am God!"
The worms climb arrogantly upwards.
The coward rejoices to be in the clouds.
Only the free man
"I am a slave".
