"We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams" -Arthur O'Shaughnessy (but also from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory)


There once was a man
Who spent all his time thinking
Of what he would have done
And should have done
And could have done
He was a very old man
And he walked through the leaves of trees
He walked on top of the clouds
Don't ask me how
He didn't like to talk to people
Not old farts like him
Or young women
Or little kids
No, instead he just thought and
thought
Of all the things he would have done
And should have done
And could have done
And then he floated off to Nowhere-land
Before he could figure out why he never did.
