Sisyphus – Andrew Bird (Breaks Down His Song, Sisyphus)

"Most of us have long ago lost our bodies. It seems, in fact, that 'I' am almost sitting on my body as if I was a horseman riding on a horse. I am my head, but I own my body. The body is reduced from self to property, something which is mine, but not me. Man will not live with his body, for that is corruptible, and thus he lives only as his ego, a picture of himself to himself, and a picture that leaves out any true reference to death. Ultimately, the body is avoided because it is the abode of death. " 
– Ken Wilber, No Boundary
This Fox has a longing for grapes:
He jumps, but the bunch still escapes.
So he goes away sour;
And, 'tis said, to this hour
Declares that he's no taste for grapes.
