Anatta

Yesterday upon the stair
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away

When I came home last night at 3
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all!

Go away, go away
Don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away
And please don’t slam the door

Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away

Hughes Mearns
Antigonish (1899)
