she loves the sprout and the bean...



I slept all day
awoke with distaste
and I railed,
and I raved

That the difference between
the sprout and the bean
is a golden,
it is a twisted string.
And you can ask the counsellor;
you can ask the king;
and they'll say the same thing;
and it's a funny thing:

Should we go outside?
Should we go outside?
Should we break some?
Are y'interested?

And as I said,
I slept as though dead
dreaming seamless of lead.

When you go away,
I am big-boned and fey
in the dust of the day,
in the dirt of the day.

and Danger! Danger! Drawing near them was a white,
and Danger! Danger! drawing near them was a broad boat,
And the! water! running clear beneath a white throat,
and the hollow chatter of the talking of the Tadpoles,

who know th'outside!
Should we go outside?
Should we break some bread?
Are y'interested?
