Corn Pie's Fed Ninth Grade Universe

1. Aug. 1991

A car
Car door
Door opens
Open wide
Jump inside
Look far and wide
For the real
The real you
The real me
Can’t you see
You and me
Dancing in the city without a passport
And passing on the knowledge of nothing
Buffing the elders
The fact killed children of the
Finding rows
Of good shittin’ cotton
With a grin
And a magnetic friend
And a magic gem
And a guy named Jim whose standards excel
Mere peaceful equations
And manic elation of the relative
And a tuna sang a verse of the old hymn

“Yeah, Daddy-O
You got to fucking working for this one.”
