How I found the answer to life's deepest mysteries
I think I found the answer
To time and life and love.
It wasn't in the scriptures
Or the heavens up above.

It wasn't in a crystal ball
Or in a deck of cards.
I didn't stare into a fire
Or gaze upon the stars.

It wasn't from the poets,
Though heaven knows they tried.
It didn't come from searching
From somewhere deep inside.

I didn't hear it from some
Wisely guru that I met.
It wasn't in the Daily News
Or on the Internet.

I didn't awaken in the night
Shaking with a scream.
No, it didn't happen that way;
Not from some vivid dream.

It was in a fortune cookie!
Yes, much to my surprise.
Boy, was I astonished;
It opened up my eyes.

It said that life's a journey
That you must walk alone.
... next time I'll order pizza
Speed dial on my phone.
