I took my song along to see the doctor
A supposed expert sniffer and peddler
of human cages, rages , and exclamatory sages
"Disparage to lament"
And hardly had we gotten started
Afore he questioned:
"What's the meaning of this meaning"
To either his suggestion or my regression:
I proposed a study of meaning
And started with
according to Websters
means opposed to 'that'
or two or more persons, places, or things
Which might refer to both ourselves
this, instead of that, day or year
when it referred to anybody else
And asked him how in the hell did he expect to have a theory
about people under those conditions.
To which he replied, already disparaged against using "this or that"
"Our Peters and Marys one day had started gone flat"
"And so everyones views had deliberately been both expanded
To me and you"
and reduced simultaneously
to mean everyone
including both of us
equals more than one and greater than or equal to two"
and exactly what Websters meant for 'this or that'
had been disparaged in beginning discussion
with the expert of big, small
or nothing at all
I seemed he meant could be grown by ones own hand to whatever
density fit ones circumstanced meaning
to mean of it's size
where the first thoughts began
to grow flat
Same as Auntie Pantsie
(On both my mother and fathers side, so not to mean 'this or that')
Served more food and did more cooking and eating than talking, feeding, the dog,
all the time.
And thats what bothered me
"all the time"
something was watching all the time
a leaning fat
an inclined 'this or that'
knows the truth of everything
I learned wasnt the doctor, the president or Mao SeTung
But something leaned by leaning social forces of the times.
and Baked Alaska
in a state of averaging dementia
If you dont have money
to pay the fees
or rent a room
make your own
build your own
with public funds
on public land
Theres a place for
"what ever you think"
rather than 'this or that'
poor disparaged meaning
cant raise itself
to read or write
