Didn’t they always tell you;

Stay away too long,

Nobody’ll recall your name;

The sand’ll pile up against the doors;

Cover your footprints, hide your routes.

Didn’t they always tell you,

The ones that always know what’s best,

Stay away; minds’ll change, God’s biggest leaves

Will drift and hide your pleasures.

The spring’s-wolf wind:

That carried me away;

Fetched me home,

That scarfed the village-dim dun chimneys

With skeins of drifting fog

Whispers the questions

Over and over again.

Why did they never tell you that

Your own education ain’t

Ever worth what you have to

Pay for it?
