this is one of my all time favourite pictures
and we will be stopping by the grand canyon! woot woot!!
Giants are building cyclopean walls
With too many gun-posts and barracks too small
and the higher they rise it gives way at the seams
But with bleeding out veins they will still build it taller
Now oceans are filled with the blood of new life
For forging our pyramids ten thousand floors high
While submarines frozen await now the sun
Homaging sailors seek substitute light
Now brothers of nations join arms where they reach
Find time to relax on our silicon beaches
But while oversea homes make for towers anew
Their bones are ground for the sand and are whitened with bleach
Yet preachers are preaching the greatness of man
from pulpits sprung forth from the water and the sand
Beneath twisted metal and damnation’s veil
He screams, seafaring vessels care nothing for dams
And the bird with two wings will care not for the branch
Your faith is your fate and your fate is at hand
(ive been listening to alot of hey ocean! lately, and theyre song madera inspired this. it loosely follows iambic pentameter, but i moreso wrote with the melody of that song in mind. and it wasnt till the last quatrain that i realised i was writing a sonnet, thats really nothing new. im leaving on a trip for a while and was just pulling out my notebook to take to hopefully write poetry while i was gone, but hey ocean was on so i just took to writing right away.i quite like how it turned out)

Roll out of bed, scroll past the things on my tumblr feed
Scratching my head, struck by a post that I can’t bee-lieve
This aint your dad’s buzzfeed
This is the blog of a crazed honey bee
But check that hashtag
Nelly agrees the bee’s got swag
He’s a mascot with an online penchant
But check that retweet
Screencap a pun, post, rinse, repeat
He’s a mascot with a brand new paintjob
Cereal troll? Surreal new-age marketing?
Millennials fill up their bowls, is that what they think?
It must be the honey!
He might be a nut, but so what, he’s the bee
Buzz the Bee
It’s a honey of an O. / It’s Honey Nut Cheerios! / It’s Irrezzzzistable! / Race for the taste! / Little O, Big Taste! / Nobody can say “No” to Honey Nut Cheerios. / From the hive that’s nuts about honey! / Bee happy, bee healthy! / Must Be the Honey!
Sure, Pacman can taka the taka, but can he waka the waka?
Oh trust me I’ll write plenty of songs about sharks
but they’ll all be very very depressing
I’m writing a musical that’s basically Les Mis with sharks.
