The Song About The Hero With A Gentle Heart and Bright Nipples
For a hero it is most important to have
bright nipples and gentle heart.
Armed by these he can conquer the world
or at least my neighbors yard.
It is the yard at the world's end,
there where the linden tree rocks
and walnut crepes.
a sheet is drying, a comforter, a rain poncho,
a silver fir is growing, a dwarf and a tangerine,
a hen of decent gray color,
a swallow builds her nest,
a car presses against dried grass
just like a neighbor does to another
so it is high time for the hero to hurry up.
