Obscene Gestures

Rainbows, funny shows, a puppy dog chasing its tail,

nice dreams, moonbeams, sunbeams, perfume scented mail,

beach balls, a lover’s call, a summertime that will never die,

ice cream melting on children’s cheeks who have never cried,

love at first sight, a kid with a kite, peace in the Middle East,

when charity becomes unnecessary and Africa has enough to eat,

happiness, fitness, no need for a tetanus shot,

loving everything you’ve got, never needing more, never being bored, no more poor,

your favorite meal, no more clubbing seals, no more war,

your favorite song, knowing you belong, a shooting star,

is this all we need to feel emotionally full

to laugh and feel cheerful?

So, I’ll put it all in a song, you finish by singing along, knowing you belong to

this song you didn’t write, but today or tonight, you are this song if you know

we’re rainbows

and funny shows and we puppy dogs chasing our tails

and ice cream and moonbeams, sunbeams and perfumed scented mail,

and beach balls, a lover’s call, and a summertime that will never die,

and a vaccine against everything obscene that could make you lie.
