Concrete Backslide Machine


Heaven Heaven Heaven

Farther than the eye can see

Farther than the arm can throw

Farther than the farthest star

Wood is polished, wood is hard

Metal is harder, shiny

Trees made by God chopped down

Earth melted and made shiny

The mind is a beautiful thing

A mind is a terrible thing to waste

It's a terrible thing to lose your mind

The loss suffered is not serious funny

Those who could, did

Those who could't, didn't

Those who tried, failed

Those who succeeded, charged

Mincemeat mincemeat mincemeat pie

Chocolate nougat sourdough rye

Stir and stir and stir all day

Put it in the freezer then throw it away

Walking with the men who walked before

Walking with the men who walk right now

Walking with the men who will walk after

Walking alone together some nowhere

The ones who could see before others

The ones who determined what others saw

The ones who determined what others couldn't see

The ones who shut their eyes

Determinism determined to reduce

Reductionism reducing determination

Deconstructionalism delaying construction

Coughs and sneezles spread diseasles

Heaven heaven heaven

As close as your mind's eye

As close as your bare skin

As close as your personal star

Cement mixer?

  • Putt putti!
  • First you take the gravel! (from the stream)!
  • I think that I shall never see a cement mixer as pretty as a tree!
  • I've got those happy feet!
