The story has been told before...
our intrepid host stops the film
described as a dream of dark
and troubled things
for lively discussion with experts.
Essential questions we ask about life
while confronting truths
that didn't fit in with our holiday schedules.
When all hell breaks loose
as the Reptilians in the balcony
begin to shout: Bring on the crazy cat clips!
A hush falls over the assemblage
as the Lizard King's voice
reverberates through the hall:
Life, as you know it, is a dirty fairy tale...bittersweet at best...when our time comes, we'll drive electric cars, support compassionate causes, abolish pay toilets, and live in elaborate
You grieve for irretrievable things
your whole lives long
then wax philosophical
in a joint like this
when that's really the long
and the short of it
Then slowly, one by one,
as the realization sinks in,
the peeps begin to rise
and file out of the theater
in a sad and dejected looking way
as a series of crazy cat videos
careen across the screen
for those still insisting upon
their full money's worth.
