Sprout And The Bean


I slept all day
I woke with distaste
and I railed
and I raved

that the difference between
the sprout and the bean
it is a golden ring
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 bread
are y'interested?

and as I said
I slept as though dead
dreaming seamless dreams
of lead

when you go away
I am big-boned and fey

in the dust of the day
and in the dirt of the day

and the danger, danger drawing near them was a white coat
and the danger, danger drawing near them was a broad boat
and the water, 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?
