“I saw my head laughing, rolling on the ground
 And now...I’m set free to find a new illusion”
-I’m Set Free, Velvet Underground

“We're off to never never land”
               -Enter Sandman,  Metallica

     Th e Eas ter Bu nny wa s Ne X'd out     
Tune in, little Timmy, tune in, tiny Tim, tune in
to hear the argument, while mother and dad are stuffing
COLOURED boxes under a dead tree /colored balls,  
    a child’s Christmas in wails                         the
          now the tooth fairy, that was tough          boogie-man's
(‘cause dad didn’t have a dollar in his pocket,          always the last
you got nothing but a hole in your mouth)               to go

who     Then, Doctor L., came the time to put away all of your adultish things
puts            Harvard, or was that Yale?,the government, the CIA, even psychology
those things           Turn on the off ramp to Disillusionment USA
in your nose?                          ...there's a sign post up ahead, next stop...
          *black* and *white* and *institional green*

things getting strange tl? evolution a little forced?
        That pink-gray cauliflower           *old rose*
,perched atop the celery stalk, doing the talking now          *lime green*
*tangerine*     you are what you eat -          *cherry red*
     More fruit of the rotted rye?          *turquoise*

Blast off! DTL-25                    *permanent green light*
     from earth     *dirt color*
*red*          past mars, the rings of Saturn     *rainbow*
               past uranus,                *raw sienna*
*glow-in-the-dark black*     to some unknown black hole, to
                         Drop out on the other side
*burnt umber*
             *whoa, more rainbows*                   to see the swirling rainbows
          *fluorescent brown*
                    Here comes the death fairy    *mood indigo*
                    A dollar for your soul
the                    When are you going to realize
                    That when you wake up      *a whiter shade of pale*
boogie-man               You'll have no place to spend
Oh, when are you going....knows          *maroon*
