Interlude 9—Travelling Without Leaving Home.


Travelling Without Leaving Home

Oh Martha look, the Taj Mahal
see how it glitters so
a masterpiece of ancient art
oh damn, its time to go

Oh Martha see, a Raphael
its filled with life and hope
the form, the lines remind me so
of that old ad for soap

Oh Martha hear, the symphony
the crystal, dulcet tones
its good to sit in here awhile
and rest the tourist's bones

Oh Martha now, how meaningful
affirmative not bitter
those zen boys really knew the way
to rake out kitty litter

Oh Martha well, at last we’re home
to Kansas we're returning
with souvenirs and photographs
and not one ounce of learning
