A parliament of owls
above the youngsters' school -
wide-eyed wise-old hawks -
watch play the tiny fool
a dunce-capped mouse
who knows not they rule !
The Norse gods died,
the Greek gods died,
such is immortality. Whether
we gain immortality or not,
there only this body to rot,
forever won't last for ever?
I saw, from the Thai Archer bar,
what looked to be a shooting star
outside the cycle of our today.
A fiery-arrow upon its way
through the dark of outer space,
and there was I in a foreign place,
an alien visitor in Thailand,
a very-pretty girl holding my hand.
Perhaps the star was a sign:
"Englishman, you and she both shine"?
There was a callous fellow
invented a bull that would bellow
when heated with a human inside.
Many men were put to death
bellowing with their fiery-breath,
and the first victim his lord tried
was the callous inventor himself who
bellowed and bellowed, "Moo moo moo !!"
