    Puppets By Leonard Cohen

    German puppets
    burnt the Jews
    Jewish puppets
    did not choose

    Puppet vultures
    eat the dead
    Puppet corpses
    they are fed

    Puppet winds and
    puppet waves
    Puppet sailors
    in their graves

    Puppet flower
    Puppet stem
    Puppet Time
    dismantles them

    Puppet me and
    puppet you
    Puppet German
    Puppet Jew

    Puppet presidents
    puppet troops to
    burn the land

    Puppet fire
    puppet flames
    feed on all the
    puppet names

    Puppet lovers
    in their bliss
    turn away from
    all of this

    Puppet reader
    shakes his head
    takes his puppet
    wife to bed

    Puppet night
    comes down to say
    the epilogue to
    puppet day

    The Book Of Longing By Leonard Cohen

    I can’t make the hills
    The system is shot
    I’m living on pills
    For which I thank G-d

    I followed the course
    From chaos to art
    Desire the horse
    Depression the cart

    I sailed like a swan
    I sank like a rock
    But time is long gone
    Past my laughing stock

    My page was too white
    My ink was too thin
    The day wouldn’t write
    What the night pencilled in

    My animal howls
    My angel’s upset
    But I’m not allowed
    A trace of regret

    For someone will use
    What I couldn’t be
    My heart will be hers

    She’ll step on the path
    She’ll see what I mean
    My will cut in half
    And freedom between

    For less than a second
    Our lives will collide
    The endless suspended
    The door open wide

    Then she will be born
    To someone like you
    What no one has done

    She’ll continue to do
    I know she is coming
    I know she will look
    And that is the longing
    And this is the book
