Commentary"I've seen things; I've seen them with my eyes" - including "Kuala
Lumpur". We have touched each other in ways unimaginable barely 20 years ago.
A song about internetional adventures.....about how we can go everywhere but still
not know where we are really going.
By the way, the word "internetional" was invented by me (c) 2011
Probe for a listening lobe.
Hoist mast around the globe.
Plot with hope to disrobe.
Knees knelt, needily hand-held hips.
Groans and grindings of passing ships.
Sucked hollow straw milk-shake
Plucked petals pink poise untucked.
Fickle fortune unlucked.
Moments stolen from burglars' homes.
Proudhon's property. Perverse poems.
Earn caged bird electric burn.
Science watches it learn
not to punishment spurn.
Pain from pleasure. Cold heart hot kissed.
Gain to measure. Ignore point missed.
Call love how heads bang a wall.
Weep as defences fall.
Tragic prizes for all.
Blind chase shadows outside Troy's gates.
Back home Argos's welcome waits.
With her now?
