286 : 1/21/99 : Child of Creation

Child of creation
Just born today
Take a look at America
What do you have to say
This is a strange situation
Come to visit on the fourth of July
Come and see all the pomp and veritas
Come and watch while the parade passes you by
Child of contemplation
Say everything is become strange
You were just born yesterday
We had so little time to arrange
Walk into our garden
and ignore the garbage by path
walk among our rosebuds
and ignore the man who needs a bath
Walk among us
Join our celebration
of our strange decay
Child of creation
