"Singing dancing you and me / In our pink top hats and tails"

Absurdity Saves the Day!


for Heartshope Kandaroo (and you and you and you)


When hope is unsharable

You think it could not get worse

A smile seems unwearable

In a random universe

When life is unbearable

You feel like riding a hearse


That is when absurdity

Saves the day and never fails

Laughing existentially

As the train runs off the rails

Singing dancing you and me

In our pink top hats and tails


Let the Tom DeLays Bill Frists

All the fundamentalists

Live well on their way to hell

As they fish and we cut bait


Just too little?  Just too late?

Come on out and step in style

Ours the folly!  Theirs the fate!

Come on out and smile awhile


All is relative I say

Their Second Amendment rights

Our First Amendment bright lights

Nothing matters anyway:


Absurdity saves the day!
