Excusing Myself

Yesterday I excused myself,

And thus I lowered

The quality-standard

Of the world.

Today I am excusing myself,

And thus I am lowering

The quality-standard

Of my own soul.

Tomorrow I shall excuse myself,

And thus I shall lower

Even the Quality-standard

Of my Beloved Supreme.
