Imagine our future
as seen in this
Woody Allen suture
Apes don't read philosophy
so each one could be
out for one's self ...
our future was sunny
Maybe back when,
Woody Allen was funny.
by Pat Darnell
It was late
one early night
we were watching
"Sleeper" on the tube--
you know, with Keaton and her
Silly putty nose ...
She claims two
positions and trends
'Sex' and 'Death' as harbingers
-- presage to what will become --
but as those two ideas intend ...
... already have been done,
... yes, dead ringers,
When it comes to an end
... we wish it to go on.
Elm Street is much changed
Robots like HAL, the avenues roam,
getting confused at crossroads
just like humans getting hanged
-- like Jurors' contrasting impressions,
Ambivalent as Nietzsche tomes ...
... adverse to change in direction,
... static as gnomes
By the way; Sleeper never sleeps
and, whatever he eats, he slips on --
like it cannot be real, because peels
and rinds remain behind
... with giant chicken,
which prompts the plot to thicken
and creates apprehension ...
... about His POD
left around to satisfy His pons ...
Woe is me ...
Di's and Wood's very funny troubles
often bring out their stunt doubles
-- like His new robot dog pet, Tricky-woo,
when Sleeper gets his brain rubbed out --
Puppy is a true sport too ... as its
command is his master's wishes ...
... makes one question about:
'Say, what about the fishes?'
... because later He disbelieves She;
all because 'Big Brother ...
... redesigns their pedigrees;
so that two equals three --
'Till the end we are a'swirl,
but thankfully, in final scene ...
da' Boy kisses da' Girl.
