since man has taken fingers

and drawn figures in the sand
the art of that expression
has gone wildly out of hand
 
man's caves were laced with paintings
that described their daily deeds
and as regards to poetry
i guess these were the seeds
 
then man created language
and their sounds became designs
which were written in a little chain
their ends affixed with rhymes
 
and then poets told their stories
their emotions all laid bare
to make us cry or make us laugh
or give us all a scare
 
and i find myself now guilty
placing thoughts upon my pad
and knocking out some drivel
like a person, plainly mad
 
but i guess i'm gonna do it
till my hand's too weak to scrawl
or i get so fogged and feeble
that i make no sense at all
 
but for now i'm fairly stable
and that means that you are doomed
to pick my little flowers
that i've read and wrote and bloomed
