   The 12-year-old boy next door

escapes his dreams and

rises out of his bunk-bed.

He scurries out the door

as fast as his young legs

will take him.

6: 00 a.m. on a Sunday morning

is the lousiest time of the week

for him.

He elevates his exhausted body onto

his blue ten-speed

and is on his way.

As he is swiftly pedaling away,

his head is suddenly filled with information and news.

After a long and exhausting ride,

he finally approaches the house next door.

He quickly tosses his tired body onto the dew-kissed lawn.

He rolls himself into a snug position and

collects his thoughts.

As he lies still,

he can hardly wait to open up and share them with

the rest of the world.

"Sitting in an English Garden waiting for the sun, if the sun don't come you get a tan from standing in the English rain. I am the eggman, they are the eggmen, I am the walrus! Goo goo g'joob.

Interesting concept, I bit deep for me though. I don't completely understand some of it, but it's still good though.
