A Stick is an Excellent Thing

(excerpt)

A STICK IS AN EXCELLENT THING

A stick is an excellent thing.

If you find the perfect one,

it’s a scepter for a king.

A stick is an excellent thing.

It’s a magic wand.  It’s yours to fling,

to strum a fence, to draw the sun.

A stick is an excellent thing

if you find the perfect one.
