be

something
else
to

being

the tatastha kid

particular nature of

the

tatastha

kid

way is the

tatastha

kid
without

is

the

tatastha
kid

without

the way one

might

call

spirit

the
tatastha

kid

is

one hell of

a

wild

card

from one perspective

listen

not
even
begin

to

forget

your
controversial decision to get out
and
just
go

with the tatastha

kid

riding shotgun by

your

own

volition
my

dear

you took it

upon
yourself yes no
question
about
it

you

took
to

carrying
the
gold
at
that

particular stage of

life

with
the

tatastha

kid

riding

shotgun
by

your

side the conversation was gold

we

all

felt
stark

naked

amazed

at

the way you

dressed

the

tatastha
kid

down

and made it look real

natural
to
get

around

to
revealing

yourself
as

a
go

to

character of interest in the present yuga

wherever

and

whenever
things

needed

a

little

push to arrive

at
the

way

is
no

other

way to realize

it

is

true
yes
no
kidding
you

did it without

a

single

doubt
you
did

it

other

way

to
be

true

to form timely in the kali yuga scheme of things yes

i

know

there
is

no

other way we need to sing Hare Kṛṣṇa in

communion

whole

movement
to
that

effect
over

five

hundred
years
ago

know
but
leave
us
not
minimize
those

who

better

is

like

unto
Shri

Nityananda

Avadhuta

in

his
accomplished
mission

untold

available

tatastha

kids to be

fashioned
into
reality

inevitable

need
personal
forward

thinking

done

yet
but

perspective after all there is more than

enough

gravity

spare

each
other

the

weight
of

feeling so kind

of

time

sensitive
as

to

leave space out

of
that
which
