i’m being questioned by some guy in a uniform
i’m being led away to some cell
i’m escaping dramatically
digging tunnels with spoons
or leaping over electric fences to my freedom
i run down lonely streets in dead of night
i sleep in abandoned cars
i eat berries and drink rainwater
i am re-captured and beaten
help me
this is no joke
i am being held against my will
i am being brainwashed
i am being reprogrammed
a guard comes in my room
we struggle
i crack his head on a wall
i see my chance
and i slip into the darkness
i roam shanty town in the shadows of night
hiding in the alleys and warrens of this place
i lie low for a while
until one morning i swim across a canal
on the other side i climb up a bank
and run like hell into a dense wood
i forget my own name
i live in a cave like a hermit
i live off pure air and the crystal streams
i grow slowly invisible to all but the most careful eye
i am friend to the small birds and creatures
i am friend to the serpent and to the bear
i move through the woods silently like the wind
i eat the honey the bees willingly give
lovely little wild apples i roast outside my cave
i learn the languages of the beasts
i learn how to bring the rain on down
i learn to manipulate the clouds
i send my mind out
out out out
to the great cities of this earth
to nineveh
to sydney
to l.a.
to rome and athens and anywhere i want
i am there now
all around you
everywhere nowhere
i explore your dreams
i float through your nights
i appear behind your eyes
and then i disappear
i sing in the loneliest night
i dance by myself next to my fire
i read books unwritten at last
i invent a million stories you’ll never have time to hear
i test my bonds
i scream at the jailers
i rattle my cage
i pound my chest
i mate with a female they have captured
i burrow under the walls
i climb up into the sky
and pull my rope up
i want to be gone
gone again
real gone
help me
theyre holding me here
this is no joke
they got me
n they got me good
i am being executed right now
oh god
they missed
oh god
theyre reloading
theyre aiming

    Now this is the kinda thing
    which could have every gullible TTB reader
    rushing over to see if youโ€™re okay.
    Iโ€™m gonna be really irritated
    to see your smiling, mocking face!

    When you face the firing squad, for your last request, suggest they aim 6″ above your head.

    I also have an escape kit, consisting of a Robin Hood outfit, just in case you need a cunning disguise that won’t stand out amongst the crowd.

    He lived in peace with all God’s creatures, was in communion with nature and never ate flesh foods. Despite all these virtues “What An Unlucky Man He Was”.

    Lets hope Kevin Rudd can put together a rescue package for this blog, it has been in deficit for too long!
    He needs to restore faith in this blog as consumers are losing confidence daily.
    Key members have hinted at crossing the floor and infighting is at an all time high.
    As for the leadership,it seems Mr Kilby’s imagination has definitely suffered from the interest rate (in his blog) cut.

    is this linguistic alchemy?

    “theyre reloading

    they missed again and gave up because you can’t eliminate the Time Being.

    For God’s sake don’t try Birmingham…..unless you want that firing squad to seem positively palatable!
