    "Keep up the spirits!"
    Cos that's how it goes.

    When we're broken and lonely,
    we pay a dear price to stay grounded.

    Well.. this year we're coming home for the holiday,
    head down and beaten up.

    Where is the love?

    back and forth he goes,
    converting between even powers of sine and cosine.

    Though his strategy fails, he takes advantage of the following half-angle identities,
    for he can always re-evaluate without recycling a formula.

    And what has he learned?
    ...to always check that he has not lost his identity,
    Nor has his natural log:

    Body, mind, and spirit.
