I'd Rather Dance and Sing

I have slept during the scholar's teaching
Have imagined Elysium in the company of saints
Drifted off in thought
I have dreamed of a world without pain
While the world burned
I slept rather than learn
Because I am content
The world calls my name
It is too serious
I am too tired
The world is busy
 Making gadgets and gizmos
 Fighting many wars
They tell me to be ashamed
I believe in peace
I believe in simplicity
And care nothing for fame
