There’s this and that

And things to do

These and those

Trials and tribulations

(I live)

And looking at me

I might seem lonely

But I’m not

(I think)

But out of all those stars

None shines down on me

They just cast

A distant glow

(I fear)



Other Voices

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.
