It is getting cold -
But the ice caps are melting:
time to plant a tree.

Time to plant a tree -
ten years to grow a tree, yet
hundred years a man.

Hundred years a man,
Fourteen years a pedigree,
two week mosquito.

Two week mosquito
found out he was a fortnight,
fourteen days of hell.

Fourteen days of hell,
Monkey King broke free from it
with discerning eyes.

With discerning eyes,
I map your face, counting all
The hairs on your chin.

The hairs on your chin,
need some serious plucking!
Your chinny chin chin.

Your chinny chin chin
cannot save your brick veneer.
I'll blow your house in.

I'll blow your house in,
with a huff and a puff and
a sly wolfy grin.

A sly wolfy grin
from him and the audience
all howl with laughter
Just because you're paranoid it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

All howl with laughter;
stifle possibility!

Appearance trumps truth.
Competition filters out
the best and worst acts.

The 'best' and 'worst' acts,
and how they are established,
depends on theory.

Depends on theory
how the universe is run.
That's absolute fact.

That's absolute fact
that facts can be distorted
to meet one’s purpose.

To meet one's purpose
one must first conceive the art
of reproduction

Just twitterpation -
a chorus of canaries
with tiny pea brains.

With tiny pea brains,
though small the canaries, they
have all the organs.

Have all the organs,
they hold no memories, but
can I keep the hair?

Can I keep the hair
that collects in your bath tub?
- Cover my bald spot.

"Cover my bald spot",
said the eagle while primping.
Date night with a hawk.

Date night with a hawk,
a predator. He dives right
in, goes for the kill.

In goes for the kill.

Of pure aggression,
he was thrown into this world
to take the first swing.
