Over, Under, Around, and Through
ahem, ...la la la ... (cue music)
Over the river, and under the highways,
Through Camberville’s streets we go;
the Bane knows the way from Properzi Way
through urban midnight glow.
Over the river, and through industrial zone tubes,
to the sound of McFuzzLord’s tunes!
We would not stop on the blacktop,
for 'tis the eleventh of June.
Over the river, and around Powderhouse —
oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the eyes with grit and flies
as around the black hole we go.
Over the river, and under the commuter rail on Yerxa Road—
and straight through Fresh Pond’s gate,
We did not go terribly slow,
but (when choppering up steep mulched paths) it is hard to maintain your gait!
Over the river, and around Harvard Square—
Through a parking lot near Lechmere,
collecting high-fives (both pastry and live)
Plus cheesecake for everyone.
Over the river, under the commuter rail by Target —
and around the Target parking lot!
Hurrah for the fun! Is the mission done?
Hurrah for the checkerboard!
Fly over a river, under a bridge, around a nebula and through a tunnel.
Create a new flight formation: (Checkers. first get into red coat, then stagger like a checkerboard) and perform it successfully.
Tie your shoes.
