Some used to think there life on mars.
People, and cities, and motorcars.
Some thought the gold moon likewise.
Some said to the moon we didn't go,
the launch of spaceships just a film-show
to bring the Russians down-to-size.
But science is magic, don't you see?
Find it takes away only the mystery.
The bishop and the actress !
Or the geisha and the guru !
It's hard to cast off the desire
that nature puts on you !
Beauties come, beauties go;
very-pretty girls I got to know.
Leaving at a turn-of-page,
I never get to see them age.
Sometimes I take a backward-look,
not yet at the end of the book.
Pricilla is such a prude,
doesn't like the word 'nude'.
If she doesn't get laid soon
the girl will be a wrinkly-old-prune !
I'm in love with distance.
The focus is more intense.
Looking in from the outside
trying to make sense
of the life men lead
on a globe grown dense.
