The human being cloud

Eucalyptus, and gentleman

The cartoons in the village are playing on repeat
It is a bewildering time
Having watched 15,000 episodes of The Jetsons
The kids don’t know the difference between
George of the Jungle and Tarzan
They haven’t seen either in so long
Woody Woodpecker is an even more distant memory
Such violence
And the two birds, Heckle and Jeckle
Well they’re just racist

It’s obscene the amount of humor that goes into
making an ugly cartoon ugly
Yet we watch the news without blinking
Through all the cynical seasons

The people on Jeopardy know all the answers
But when does one ask the right question?
Pregunta, quaestio
It doesn’t matter which voice you use
Just stare at the heavens
Boiling like a cold clod
All day, all night
And then an anvil falls on your head
