Another Rotation

    The world rotated again on its axis as it's so
    fond of doing.

    The sun shone warm and bright but was
    swallowed at last by the night.

    A boy in a mans body said "tomorrow" and
    life left him behind.

    The buses all put-putted around in circles.
    One passenger saw only the smiling dead
    bouncing along, not comforted at all in
    knowing it was all in his head.

    Some guy stood admiring a collection of
    flowers, trying to pick the very best one.
    But before he could decide the season
    changed and they all withered and died.

    A strangely comforting voice came from
    another world and said only this:

    "I am never lost, I am only seeing places I
    have not seen before."

    Someone had an orgasm in their sleep and
    wondered if this was how immaculate
    conception took place.

    Someone had a dream of the future while
    awake but laid it to rest and went back to
    sleep after seeing what was in the mail.

    Someone decided finally that his heart had
    done him wrong once too often and resolved
    to beat it brutally to death.

    Someone laughed at himself and felt a
    moment of relief.

    Someone received a call from a close friend
    that was far away and knew that the night
    would turn again.
