booster engine: a long poem

I.

we go we go
to and fro
to and fro
o i see the angels
they're doin' thangs

II.

sing a song
tra-la-la
cabbage is cheap
so is life
fuuuuuuck

III.

i don't know, what are you doing?
i don't know, just hanging out
why, what's up?
uh huh?
really?
okay.

IV.

seven men
eight women
crabs everywhere
the kingdom of the lord

V.

sing me a song, o boatkeeper
make it one of fish and dreams
and love and hope and all those things
and mountains and sweets
and most of all
make it a song of the times
because

because

because
we're gonna make it this time
we're gonna catch that rainbow
in the booster engine
amen.

truly an epic for the ages (3-6).
