Useless questions

22 09 2009


A wine bottle fell from a wagon
And broke open in a field.

That night hundred beetles and all their cousins

And did some serious binge drinking.

They even found some seed husks nearby
And began to play them like drums and whirl.
This made God very happy.

Then the ‘night candle’ rose into the sky
And one drunk creature, laying down his instrument
Said to his friend – for no apparent

“What should we do about that moon?”

Seems to Hafiz
Most everyone has laid aside the music

Tackling such profoundly useless

-Hafiz, found on this site

I feel fairly certain the beetle music sounded something like this:

“Master Musicians of Jajouka – A Habibi Ouajee T’Allel Allaiya”
