Ah Via Masonicon!
What do you suppose these secrets might be
That those masonic bastards are keeping from me?
They walk around town with their smug smiles;
I see a damn lodge every four miles!
I decided to ask three masons their secrets to tell!
Then I would have the power and they could go to hell!
The first one I stopped with a right firm shove
"What is your aim?", he said "Brotherly Love!"
What the second one said was beyond belief!
I don't know what it means, but he said, "RELIEF!"
The third I punched so hard he lost a tooth
but he grinned with his gap and said, "We seek only Truth!"
I was so angry I wanted to choke out their breath!
"We shall see," I thought, "If they fear their own death!"
The first one I found, and boy was I hot!
"Give me the secrets!" but he said, "I SHALL NOT."
The second didn't budge even when I said he'd be shot;
Even facing sure death he cried, "I WILL NOT."
The third was the most defiant of all
I grabbed his shirt and raised my stone maul!
"Don't think of refusing! You'd better not!"
With a calm disposition he said, "I can not."
Shaking with anger and at my wits end
I fell to the ground, but he said, "My friend..."
"You seek handshakes, silly words and shiny rings
but Masonry's not about any of these things.
There is a secret we have but cannot share
no matter the time, not here and not there;
But it's not for the reason you might surmise -
when you figure it out it's quite a surprise!"
The first and the second spoke up as well,
explaining the secret is not something you tell.
"It's an experience you seek and desire,
a journey through Life until you Retire;
It's not in a book or a scroll upon some shelf
To know you must learn about it yourself.
You don't need us Masons to figure it out
We'd love to tell the whole world with a shout!"
So I started a journey down the road less taken
and when I finally learned it I was quite shaken!
"That was hard!" I thought, but it could have been worse!
I learned I am One with the whole Universe!
So now if you see me on the street with a smile
Come sit with me and let's talk for a while
I'll tell you about a great Secret I can't transmit
and the wonderful journey that led me to It. :-)
