The chicken or the egg

I wonder what’s a hyphen
I wonder what’s a dash
I wonder why truth and lies spin in paragraphs

I wonder what’s a noun
I wonder what’s a verb
I wonder what it is, that-I should have learned?

I wonder what’s a voice
I wonder what’s a sound
I wonder where I am and what is going down

I wonder what is when and who is now
I wonder what is where and why is how
I wonder what it is the fuss is all about?

I wonder if it was just me,
Living through these eyes
And if I set my spirit free
I’d wonder where it goes
I wander here and wander there
I wonder how it knows

I wonder what’s a guess,
I wonder what is fact
I wonder what’s a chance
I wonder where’s the catch
I wonder what it is, that Goliath must have said
And I wonder what’s a chicken
And I wonder what’s an egg

I wonder which is first and I wonder when is last.
