World Enough and Time
Well, if he did have world enough and time,
he'd be pretty bummed, I think. She'd be coy
as ever while he withers past his prime.
Stonehenge, the pyramids, the siege of Troy,
the rise and fall of Romehe'd wait and wait
till the trumpets blow, and still not get laid.
So he tries to shock and provoke, but she's sedate
and unmoved. She's not so easily swayed
by specious tributes and phony praise.
She's no dumb blondeshe won't fall for that.
Lay on hyperbole thick as mayonnaise,
and she'll just smell a hypocritical rat.
So why not cut the crap and say it straight:
"I'm crazy about youwill you be my mate?"
