What a logical world!

I was in Wendy's. The hispanic thug-types were talking about after-market value on restored classic cars. The aging jock was talking about how disappointed he was that a radio show was using "untenable" assertations. The two high-school kids I couldn't hear very well, but they must have been talking about high-level math. What else could make kids want to kiss so much?

Also, I got Soul Calibre III for $18.

The world seems smarter than yesterday.

"What a Logical World"

I see trees of green... and chlorophyll too.
Creating our oxygen... from cast-off CO2.
and I think to myself,
"What a logical world!"

I see a sky of blue... from refracted rays.
A white sun red... through atmospheric haze.
And I think to myself,
"What a logical world!"

The colors of the rainbow... at 42 ascencion,
Are shining in the eyes... of those who pay attention.
I see friends shaking hands... bumpin' molecules.
They're really saying... "Physics rules!"

I hear babies cry... I watch them grow,
to full-sized youths... from a tiny embryo!
And I think to myself,
"What a logical world!"

(Synthesizer solo!!! Preeeeeow!)

The colors of the rainbow... at 42 ascencion,
Are shining in the eyes... of those who pay attention.
I see friends shaking hands... bumpin' molecules.
They're really saying... "Physics... rules."

The stars in the night... shining ten-thousand fold,
I gaze in awe... at light twelve thousand years old.
And I think to myself,
"That's twice as old as some misguided people think the planet is..."
And I think to myself,
"That's twice as old as some misguided people think the planet is..."
Ohhhhhh yeeaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh...

That was hysterical. Seriously, this is my favorite thing you've written. I haven't noticed this phenomenon.

Patrick: Read it already, thanks.

Mory: Glad you like it, but it makes me all sad to know you prefer my fifteen-minute filks to my four-hour analysi.

I know there's a weepy-face emoticon, but I don't know how to do it. :P

Hey, I dig the theory.

Mory said...

Hey, if you can do a four-hour analysis with style, I'll be all over it. :D
