First Line: The ego, non-ego, the body, the soul'
Last Line: The devil! The clock! Well, flunking is fine!
Subject(s): Procrastination

"THE ego, non-ego, the body, the soul" --
I wonder if she has a heart, --
"The concept, sensorium, body, the whole," --
I can't keep these meanings apart!

"The ego, non-ego" -- such sweet little ways,
And the touch of her hand in the waltz, --
A million, cotillion, my mind's in a maze, --
"The concept" -- Jack says she is false.

"The concept -- the concept" -- where did I leave off?
"Sensorium, body, body, the mind" --
She's a sweet little sinner, for all they may scoff, --
"Sensori" -- the devil! -- I'm not near so blind.

"The ego, non-ego" -- did Prex ever dream
That a waltz lurked concealed in this line?
"Perception, the sense" -- I know she may seem --
The devil! the clock! well, flunking is fine!
