Chitter -Chatter

Chitter- Chatter

 

The constant chitter chatter of my brain

Like this ceaseless Dublin rain,

The monkey hopping from tree to tree

My brain flies too, forever breaking free.

Oh! this constant chitter chatter of my brain

It never sleeps and hungers for all it sees

Its lured, knowing all is truly a mere tease.

Because of this constant chitter chatter of my brain

The Self has more to lose and nothing to gain

If only it stayed and focused, it would easily find

The treasure lies in the heart, not in the mind.

The constant chitter chatter of my brain

The hopping monkey I am unable to train…
