*** BEST OF THE GUEST ***

February 14th l999

THE SLEEPING SOUL

The sleeping soul will sleep with anyone
Seeking energy for that instant lift
The hunger finished with the enemy
The fun diminished with each passsing gift
But what if you are friends?
The soulwill never sleep
Eschewing then the ends
So friendship we can keep
Remembering the fate
Of those who went before
We shunned the ones we loved
And never saw them more

Eddie B
