Lost: Pet Pigeon. So sad and yet so funny. I mean, who has a pet pigeon? Is it even possible? Do you take him to the pigeon park and let him run off-leash? Do you have to stoop-and-scoop? Is there a pigeon vet to give him his shots? Spay/neuter clinic? Does he have a name? Does he answer when called? So many questions . . .
Sure, the owners are devastated but how does the pigeon feel? What makes a pigeon happy? Does he feel good when he works out? Does he like receiving money? Is he happy when he feels stronger? Does he feel proud when he writes a good song or poem? Does he like laughing? Does he like getting good feedback on his music? Is he trying to lose weight? Does he like receiving a compliment? How about getting a massage? Does he have a favourite food? Is he happy when he sees a beautiful pigeon? Is it deeply satisfying when he has a conversation with a good listener? Does he always try to learn something every day? Does he feel good when he finishes a job and crosses it off his list?
Lost: Pet Pigeon stands on the shoulders of giants.
. . . His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgettin'
What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out . . .
Fire and Ice
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
