See this gold weight,
Is it the gold you want?
No, it’s the shape of the gold?
Is it the shape of the gold you want?
No it’s the story the shape tells.
Is it the story you want?
No, it’s the meaning I want.
Is it the meaning you want?
No, it’s the understanding I want.
And will you hoard it up?
No I will spend it.
How will you spend it?
In every shop.
Then you will keep the understanding,
And with the understanding keep the meaning,
And with the meaning keep the story,
And with the story keep the shape,
And with the shape
Keep the gold.
