This is about the wrong way to start your day.
 



Only a Fool 

Late!  Late!  Late! Through coffee buzz Throw Sansho in the general
direction of my Gohonzon. 

Stumble crash downstairs Fumble keys to door Fumble keys to club Fumble
keys to ignition Truck won't start. 

Kick!  Yell!  Swear! Grandfather floats into my mind Grey, still, and
military. 

"Only a fool doesn't have time to sharpen his saw." 

Grandfather does a special effects fade and I Look down stupidly at the
limp jumper cables In my shaky hands.
