I’ll take a thread from your hair

(and then another one)

I’ll scratch an eye from your stare

(and then the other one)

A lip from your smile

(and then I’ll leave it like that for a while)

Some fingers from your gentle touch

But not too much

(like carefully deconstructing George)

Mrs. Dorothee plays piano in the garden

And all the children know the truth

Plants and things have feelings too.

 

It’s quiet ok to touch the grass,

professor Vogel says.

Just tread softly and listen hard

Keep your head close to your heart

And do not fart. Please,

Don’t fart.

 

All of this is true you know

Leonard Nimoy told me so

A long long time ago.
