842. Tell me what you are

Tell me what you are.
I will tell you something
Most special about yourself.

“I am a doctor.”
Ah, you are a doctor!
That means you are
The restorer of life
And
Feeder of death.

Tell me what you are.
I will tell you something
Most special about yourself.

“I am a scientist.”
Ah, you are a scientist!
That means you are
The searcher of life
And
Runner after death.

Tell me what you are.
I will tell you something
Most special about yourself.

“I am a seeker.”
Ah, you are a seeker!
That means you are
The lover of Life
And
The destroyer of death.
