We did some stuff,
We did some stuff,
We did some stuff,
And that's enough

We fixed a hole,
Stuffed a mole
Inside
He'll probably get out,
Oops,
He just died
But that's enough

We did some stuff,
We did some stuff,
We did some stuff,
And that's enough

It is my pleasure to tell you, Stargirl, that you have just won the best-title-of-the-half-mad-poets-of-the-year-award, and your prize will come in the mail by sundown.

Something about these incredibly simple lines is very stirring to me, but I can't quite put my finger on it. But it's quite reassuring, like when a stranger approached me on the streets of Atlanta one day, patted my shoulder and said "It's all good." Or a prayer I know that says "what's done is done. What's not done is not done. Let it be." Beautiful philosophy, I must say.
