I've had just enough time... to write nonsense rhymes.
When I took this picture, I asked myself "What does it mean?"
It looks like Jabba and carries like Birdskin.
It is a cross between an ox and a moron
And fly like a headless cow.
It is the Queen dressed in yellow
With splashes of liquid blue.
It is a bird with skimpy feathers
That chirped “oondi oondi oondi”.
It jumped off a security building
With the bungee cord severed.
It is the exodus of lemmings to the other shore
Where the moon is always full and the grass always green.
It is the ONE ring of misfortune
Stolen by Gollum from the hobbits.
It is the ONE sought in the matrix of
Daytime nightmares and night-time illusion.
It is the sprinkle of magic dust by the Sandman,
Who has his fingers in every purse.
It is the affirmation of the Right Man
Who shackles you with words of the book.
It is the good Doctor who knows exactly
Where he is going but not where he came from.
It is Liberty in a gas mask.
It is patriotism in a flag.
It is a Name in dispute.
It is the Oneness of things, if you say so.
It is nasi lemak wrapped in discarded papers.
It is a critic who can’t read.
It is a DJ who can’t speak.
It is a hollow man with hollow eyes that lit
Up at the only unbanned yellow.
It is a game of cops and robbers, total strangers
Exchanging trousers in the night.
It is a song waiting to be sung
Drowned by Bob Dylan and the Fat lady
Competing over the national anthem.
What is this creature “Sir Tyre”?
You tell me.
I don’t know.
