The Ark – Written Sunday 6th January 2002 (Aged 26)

The Ark

two by two
and made from bark
just me and you
here, upon noah’s ark
take a trip uptown
and towards marble arch

two by two
sailing for the moon
i know,
the east end is a matriarch
so they play the spoons
and learn to feel the part

the traffic is building up
congestion is always near
so take a trip to the foreshore
take a walk along the pier
two by two
let’s make a start
let’s not get stranded
on noah’s ark
