ETYKIW

Everything you know is wrong
It’s written in the song

Thought you knew something
Thought you knew someone
Thought you had your say

Baby, it won’t be long
Everything you know is wrong

Thought you had an idea
Thought others had some too
Thought you lived in a democracy
Oh my what a fool

Every step you thought you took
Every kiss you thought you stole
Every life you thought you could control
You’d be surprised:
Life’s got it disguised

Be prepared to find something new
Watch out for déjà vu
Through the eternal spirits fly
Unfortunately your mind’s feet are on the ground
Terra ferma’s where you at
A quagmire, quicksand – feel free to adjust
The last of the greatest hopes
Hanging by the last of our ropes

A string’s jostling you about
A wish to return from the twilight
The rays split through your fingers
And mind’s eye is blinded by rhetoric
Oh how the tether’s stretched

Thought you’d belong
Turns out you were wrong
As it’s written in the song
Everything you know is wrong


Next stanza is optional:

Bang a gong
Buy another bong
Too wong for wonfort
Ding a ling long
Try another thong the thon the thong thong thong…
Everything you know is wrong

p.s.

sorry if I don't reply more often I dont' have much time thes days and my eyes are still bleeding from reading hermes' excellent "epics"

Ummmm..the 'load of crap' as i so eloquently put it, would be what I had just said, not your poem.

Just wanted to clear that up, in case you thought I was being mean.

Wow, since when did you have a camera inside my brain?! I feel like that poem a lot. Thanks! Bono's smiling and so am I.
Know how you feel also re: bleeding eyes and hermes' epics... that one floored me too.
