"Yeah, I'm the one with my feet on the ground. But I've got long legs and I have to bend my knees to keep my head out of the clouds."


In life I like to sit by death
And picnic where the headstones lie
In strife I like to think on them
And ask these selfsame headstones why.

Just why they grow like garden weeds
But can't be pulled and never fade
Just why I sit upon the green
But someday neath it will be laid.
