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 wake up 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 told me LIFE'S A JOURNEY
THAT YOU MUST WALK ALONE

...next time I'll order pizza
Speed dial on my phone

Deep dish!
