Celestial Navigation:

When being guided by the night sky

It is important to keep your eyes closed and your ears, open.

Watch carefully the distance between stars

And don’t try to steal third base when you are on Mars.

If you find yourself feeling joyful on Jupiter

Take the first right and keep on until morning.

The answer is there is no answer.

Nothing you know will be known any longer.

Trying to hedge your bets is ridiculous.

If I were you I would buy land somewhere

With a big house and a vegetable garden

And hope for a barn dance with a caller from the Moon

Where they always do everything so well.

If I were you I have no idea what I would do

As it is hard enough being me.
