Only Thing To Do Is Jump Over the Moon

Last night, I had a dream
I found myself in a desert called Cyberland
It was hot
My canteen had sprung a leak and I was thirsty
Out of the obice walked a cow, Elsey
I asked if she had anything to drink she said
”I am forbidden to produce milk,
In Cyberland we only drink Diet Coke (coke…coke…coke)
She said
“Only thing to do is just over the moon”
They've closed everything real down
Like barns and troths and...
Performance Spaces
And replaced it all with lies and rules and
Virtual Life... But there is a way out

Back Ups
Leap of faith, leap of faith, leap of faith, leap of faith
[continues in background]

Only thing to do is jump over the moon
[back ups stop]

I gotta get outta here
It's like i'm being tied to the hood of
a yellow rental truck being packed in with fertilizer and fuel oil pushed over a cliff by a suicidal mickey mouse
I gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta find a way...
to jump over the moon
Only thing to do is jump over the moon
Then a little bulldog entered
His name we have learned was Benny
And although he once had principles he abounded them to live as a lapdog to a wealthy daughter of the
That's bull he said
Ever since the cat took off with the fiddle that cows been jumpy
And the dish and the spoon were evicted from the table and eloped
She had trouble with the milk and the mood ever since maybe it was a female thing
But who'd wanna leave cyberland anyways!
Walls ain't so bad
The dish and the spoon for instance their down on their luck they come knockin' on my doghouse door
and i said "Not in my backward utensils, go back to china!" (bideebong)
The only way out is up, Elsey whispered to me
A leap of faith
Still Thirsty?? Parched
Have some milk
As I lowered myself beneath her her swollen utters and sucked the sweetest milk
I have ever tasted!
Climb on board she said and as a harvest moon rose over Cyberland we reared back we sprang into a
gallop leaping out of orbit i awoke singing

Only thing to do
Only think to do is jump
Only thing to do is jump Over the moon
Only thing to do is jump Over the moon
Over the moon
Over the ...

My Name Is Barbra......
I'd like to swim
In a clear blue stream
Where the water is icy cold
Then go to town
In a golden gown
And have my fortune told
Just once, just once
Just once before I am old
I'd like to be not evil
But a little wordly wise
To be the kind of girl designed
To be kissed upon the eyes
I'd like to dance till two o'clock
Or sometimes dance till dawn
Or if the band could stand it
Just go on and on and on
Just once, just once
Before the chance is gone
I'd like to waste a week or two
And never do a chore
To wear my hair unfastened
So it billows to the floor
To do the things
I'd dreamed about
But never done before
Perhaps I'm bad or wild or mad
With lots of grief in store
But I want much more
Than keepin' house
Much more, much more, much more!

The Pope's Penis

by Sharon Olds

It hangs deep in his robes, a delicate
clapper at the center of a bell.
It moves when he moves, a ghostly fish in a
halo of silver sweaweed, the hair
swaying in the dark and the heat -- and at night
while his eyes sleep, it stands up
in praise of God.

Sometimes I Feel That People in the Progressive Community are Masochists...and Other Thoughts

As I think of all of the abuses of people around the the United States...Iraq...elswhere...and on many levels, brutality and the violation of humanity and rights..I think of what Abbey Lincoln said. She said in her mother's house there would be no abusing because she would just as soon pick up a frying pan and hit you in your head and that would be the end of it.... As these thoughts are running through my head, I am listening to Amy Goodman and her guest discuss torture tactics that don't leave marks or bruising in use by the U.S. government and other brutes around the makes me think of the beating Elaine Brown recieved that she described in A Taste of Power....

Tavis Smiley on Tom Joyner

Tavis was lying lying lying this morning on the TJMS. Everyone knows, including Tom, including Tavis that his projects are not the reason he is leaving the show. Tavis is mad with Tom and the rest of Black America because of their unequivocated support of Barack Obama, despite Tavist having a bitchfit about him not showing up to the annual Black State of the Union forum, hosted by Tavist and his foundation.
God Bless Hugo Chavez for sending food and supplies to Haiti!

Invisible Life: The Musical? I have often wondered about Valerie Simpson with her tenor and Nick Ashford with his soprano. But Invisible Life as a musical? Lord what a mess....
