Pome for the day

Private healthcare argument, Elvis Preseli, once said 'something to do, something to look forward to, someone to love'. Wel, that's nice, but the question was why are you wearing a turban. What is little known about the tardis-suited evapotranspirator is that he was a keen amateur dendrosophogeologist. And here, straight from the money-filing cabinet @ RCA, I mean recently discovered in an abandoned salt-mine, we see his light-minded musings in all their glory, taken from the 1975 album 'So that's the why they didn't release it'. Take it away, Elvis Preseli! -

What's it like to be a fly?
Faster than the compound lie?
Years in days and months in hours
Offspring coiled explosion flowers

What's it like to be a tree?
Thirsting, searching, sunlight see?
Drink the World through tangled straw
Watching after and before

What's it like to be a me?
Rocks expressed as person be?
Knowledge after thought confusing
Ultimately but amusing

  2. What's it like to be a you?
    I suspect there's more than two?
    Chatting through the one shared wire
    Makes the thinking come out higher

    The fractured whole...

    Non-locality\Locality Linkage can be perceived as "TheTree of Knowledge", which is the one organic and ever-complex (and therefore non-entropic)realm that enables one and only one simple law (Non-locality) to be the common knowledge of many Local expressions of it
