Mindless knick knacks
Shouldn’t be called out
For their lack of internal organs
You of the empty chest
You say so because you have to
We understand, they said
I don’t and won’t and don’t
I won’t and please leave all of us
Alone. Please leave us.
Once upon a time there lived a youngish man by the name of Cyril.
Cyril was quite shy so he spent much of his time alone in his room, fiddling about with his weblog. It was about spiders. And mushrooms. And quantum physics.
Outside Cyril’s bedroom window there lived a grand old tree, who often watched Cyril at his work. Sometimes they talked. About spiders. And mushrooms. And quantum physics.
It was a very successful relationship and they both lived as happily ever after as one could hope, notwithstanding the occasional mishap.
