Red Square

Seven stars and seven times before today.
Seven stars and seven times before.
I painted a red square in class (painted a red square).
I painted a red square in class today (painted a red square).
Sometimes I do what I like despite the stars.

Bird Cage

If I love you I would put you in a bird cage and then watch you.
If you loved me then I would feed you. And then you could cling and I’d pet you.
If you liked it, I would let you out of your cage to fly around my room.
You’d entertain me, and I watch you sing.
And we’d be intimates until you died.

D & D

Wizards and Halflings and barbarians might never make it to heaven.
So goodbye Tordek and Fangor the Great. So goodbye my friends, goodbye D&D.

No more sorcery. No more swords. No more fantasy. Thus spoke Fangor.

I like rolling dice and staying up late with the boys. But I’m afraid I’ve made idols of children’s toys. Hours reading manuals and learning the rules. All of that questing for magic tools. Meanwhile older book gather dust on the shelf. New kinds of adventure. New kinds of wealth.

No more sorcery. No more swords. No more fantasy. Thus spoke Fangor.

Arkansas

I’m in Arkansas. I’m in Arkansas. I’m in Arkansas. I’m in Arkansas.
Something was left behind. I forgot so never mind.
Never mind. So never mind. Never mind. So never mind.

Walked home in the rain. Show me better days. I melt into your eyes.
Cast your thoughts on me, but I could barely see. Then you had to leave.

You succeeded with my demise. You’re the winner, you won the prize.
Yeah, you won the prize. Yeah, you won the prize. Yeah, you won the prize. Yeah, you won the prize. Won my eyes.

Candy Store

My dad would say, “eat your vegetables every day.”
My mom bought them. Then my dad went away.
Crybabies, tearjerkers, snickers, and gum.
Crybabies, tearjerkers, snickers, and gum.

My sister came home. Every day a Holiday.
Now after school I can eat my fill of candy.

Crybabies, tearjerkers, snickers, and gum.
Crybabies, tearjerkers, not much fun.
