"We are all Worms, but I do believe I'm a glow worm"- Winston Churchill


Let's go crazy this time


Let us talk of nothing
Let us spin silly words into meaningless phrases
Speaking freely with wild abandon
Though no one has asked us to

Let us speak because it pleases us
Spouting syllables without agenda

Purple
Pernicious
Pandiculation

It's just swell. Don't you think?

Now get serious
Sing of the death
Dabble through the darkness

No

End that silly tirade

We're done now

Let's go free this round
Pleasing the Patriarchs
Flaying the Philanthropists
Eating the Oysters
No wait
Don't do that
They smell

So I stand shouting from the rooftops
DO YOU KNOW THE MEANING OF LIFE?
And they answer me with cursing
And with throwing
And they order me back to my slumber
It's quite the sleepy life I guess

The words grow heavy
My tongue becomes lead
Luscious honey slurs the movement of my lips

Quickly now
Let us plant our last pots of gold
Divulge our last turbulent tune
See off the sun
As it leaves us alone in the ink that is the night

Let’s Go Crazy

We’ve got time enough for that
