Yes, I am
well, anyway, I used to be
that is, that was, before the rock sheet
wrapped in rolling pins
ruined my recollection
that is, of early childhood
but that's been done before
long before
Yes, I will be
if I've the half-chance to work
long and hard with my buddy who passes the
pen with the phosphorous ink
it glows with the harking angels
in the sun if a fat man's shadow
undresses slowly nearby
No, I'm not very sure
but if you say so, I'd believe you
that is, if you weren't lying through
you teeth, that is, if you never
lied to anyone before, but you've got a point
what is the use, to you or to me
of trying to tell the truth
from someone else?
