My Ecclesiastes

 

Everything is meaningless the teacher said

we spend our lives searching

looking for happiness and peace of mind

in everyone and everything

but big black dogs surround me

they’re silently watching their prey

eyes that shine pierce right through me

then they turn and walk away

it’s all meaningless the teacher said

it sometimes seems that way

the happiness we think we’ve found

just fades into the mist

and the big black dogs keep circling

patiently waiting for their prey

eyes are empty of any soul

as they turn and run away

it’s all meaningless, a chasing after the wind

we all will return to the earth in the end

and the sun will set and then rise again

and the big black dogs will remain vigilant
