                                   ANOTHER ONE FOR JIM MORRISON 
              Where did he go, that vision-mad soul? 
              What did he see on his quest? 
              Who did he meet at the end of his night? 
              Why did he fail the test? 
              The shaman is old, a new must be found, 
              Take the young ones to a height. 
              Those who would be a shaman must jump. 
              The one who survives will be right. 
              He jumped--the serpent-strength filled his soul. 
              He jumped--the new lizard king. 
              He jumped--to the Lady he feared would be there. 
              He jumped--but rose not to take wing. 
              And I would now follow that worthy's descent, 
              I would dare Medicine's dive. 
              For I love the path he blazed for us all, 
              But I, unlike him, shall survive. 
              I jump--the snakes I feared buoy my soul. 
              I jump--my spirit now sings. 
              I jump--to the Lady I know will be there. 
              I jump--can it be I've grown wings?
