Trickster, Trickster tricking itself,
The commonest notion of mental health.
Go after the good and avoid the bad,
Pretend one is all joy and one's never sad.
Trickster, Trickster, how do you do?
"I'm very good, thanks and how about you?"
No idea, Trickster, the tricking has ceased,
The disturbance has ended, no more the disease.
Trickster, Trickster, how much longer?
Pretending 'I'm better', pretending 'I'm stronger',
How long 'til the old self-deception winds down
And the Trickster is seen as The Ultimate Clown?
