Upon a Planet
In a bright palace sat the king and queen
in a shining emerald throne
the king was busy sending electric letters
throught the night when he asked the queen
to open the treasure chest
swiftly her long white fingers plucked a sapphire bowl
filled with mysterious liquid
now to those creatures they found most wonderful
they blew a peculiar dew
into their dreams
three jewels prepared for them by invisible hands.
Tobe tobe tobe woke Henry
as he hammered oranges for his fast break
here a little smoke for his pet lobster
he was composing
'Cripple the Devils Soc-Hop'
as he abandoned his lemmings of hady
and put them in a barrel labelled-dim of melon
The balloon had come down to earth
and out hoped little kled
he a lantern be
'where hop do be my child?'asked Henry
'to the loop of all colours,'replied Kled
'no time clocks,no calendars,no borders and no fences
Ive been a crown,ive been a diamond ladder
Ive seen the bowrain of Alish
Ive had candy with the sould parrots'
he was jumping up and down
'theres a pimple puddle flooding this land
but i have a new song,the loop antenna is Take you Higher!'
From a pink trunk spang Lawnador
she turned toy soldiers into a chime parade
she plucked a rose from her heart
'you harp a name like a precious stone
my truly struddlebrow Mythlond pixie knee,'
'I want to comb your yellow hair.'
Henry held out his thumb
so on they carried three feathers of ilk
in a hatful of swallow
