To save yourself you’ve got to selve yourself.
You’ve got to delve in self and find your wealth.
Like a book finds shelf, you’ve got to shelve yourself,
story tell yourself, George Orwell yourself,
learn to spell yourself, sniff and smell yourself,
heaven or hell yourself, because glory sells itself
and quarry fells itself, if you selve yourself.
If you selve yourself, you can foretell as well
what befell yourself. As you intel yourself,
you’ll impel yourself to dispel your hell
for paradise so swell that with joy you yell
when you find your shelf, un-shelve yourself,
and story-tell yourself.
