The Alchemist.


Oh, what's to become of me...
I'm beginning to look like a gnarled old tree
Oh I know what they say about numbers and age
Tell that to my legs and those varicose veins

Oh what to do with my pineal gland
It's a vitrified fort..a castle of sand
Oh I know what they say about Chamomile tea
Tell that to those shaman who drink '___'

Oh bring me a cup of that high spun gold
Before Dave Hudson gets too old
Oh, and fetch me some of that pixie dust
My mechanical elves are beginning to rust

Oh, did you hear of the old alchemist
Three lifetimes on the housing list
Oh, he knew all about the king and the queen
But invisible men can never be seen

Oh fetch me that soma, I read Robert Graves
That magical mushroom, back in the days
Oh play me a song on that old Rumi flute
The reed that was born in the fountain of youth

Oh suffer the children, to come unto me
The philosopher's stone, the Jungian dream
Oh wisdom and innocence come take my hand
Like old Zarathustra, I'll wander the land

Hey SyxPak... I liked that story of yours. I tell you truly, the thing that stuck out for me, and made me laugh was 'WTF'. It still makes me smile to think of it. You have a fine talent.
I'm not so deep, I'm just having fun with words.
Thanks again for those kind words.

Midicon.

Hey Night Star, I love those ears, I could write a poem about them. It was really just going to be a comment on the 'immortality' thread. I realise now that people might not even know who Dave Hudson is and stuff like that lol...
Thanks for those nice words, they give me encouragement.

Midicon.
