308 : 2/12/99 : Antarctica Begins Here

1,142 : 1 ?

The dogs are dead and eaten now
The penguins are too fast to catch
You wouldn’t think it would you
I think we’ve hit the bad patch
Antarctica begins here
Nothing to do with latitude
The endless lighted waste
This grim beatitude
I just wanted to find someplace
No one else would like
They’ve got a fuckin’ cash machine down here
Another last frontier to strike
Some penguin brought me fish to eat
And through ice thick and clear
I saw the narwal swimming past
Antarctica begins here
