Life-lines (aka: Hierarchy Malarkey: A Traditional Folk Dance from the Planet Ailanthus)
by Jedidiah Fleming
“Life is like a line,” they chime
Joined by “A” and “B.”
They say, in fact, and with exact,
That Life resides between.
But of their claim, which seems mundane,
That says the lines superior,
We cannot conceive that they believe
That Life can be so linear.
Of this, we say, to you today:
(And, we mean it with great honesty)
The line, you see, can only be
A piece in this Geometry.
Feel free to pass along my rhymes,
But, of them, you shall take no dimes.
