From Childhood, My Favorite Song

 

“From childhood, my favorite song

was ‘Que Sera, Sera,’”

said the Zen Master,

“as sung by Doris Day.”

 

“I sing it in the morning,” he said,

“I sing it in the evening.

I sing it

all over this land.”

 

“Wait. You’re confused,” we told him,

“you’ve thrown in Pete Seeger.”

 

“No matter,” the Zen Master said,

wickedly smiling,

“It’s all peanut butter. It’s all

marshmallow fluff.

 

Que sera, sera.”

 

-Dick Allen
