Any person of curiosity and intellect, who reads and converses and studies life, will have the feeling a few times a year.
"Ah! What a fool I was! I thought life was like this, but it's actually not at all like that!"
What normally follows it?
Verse two --
"I didn't get it before, but now I've got it all figured out."
The gains from the first part -- realizing the error -- are almost entirely negated by the second. Fighting that second verse to not stop your mind on the second explanation… it produces far less satisfaction, but perhaps the remaining chains will be slightly looser and easier to break next time.
