Nobody sittin’ on the bench waiting for a fight in the Fight Club


“And it’s one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don’t ask me, I don’t give a damn,
Next stop is Vietnam;
And it’s five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain’t no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we’re all gonna die.”

(Country Joe and the fish in Vietnam Song)
‘s Hertogenbosch (NL)

“How to build that ship?” End of the story!


“I saw a ship a-sinking, a-sinking, a-sinking,

With glittering sea-water splashing on her decks,
With seamen in her spirit-room singing songs and drinking,
Pulling claret bottles down, and knocking off the necks,
The broken glass was chinking as she sank among the wrecks.”

(J. Masefield in I saw a ship)

Rhythm’s in green


“In Grün will ich mich kleiden,

In grüne Tränenweiden:
Mein Schatz hat’s Grün so gern.
Will suchen einen Zypressenhain,
Eine Heide von grünen Rosmarein:
Mein Schatz hat’s Grün so gern.”

(W. Müller in Die liebe Farbe)
Bassenge (B)

We met at the old factory wall


“challenge:
called out to play …
called out to play …

response:
their friendship
does not all please
their fathers”

He thought he saw an Elephant


“He thought he saw an Elephant
That practised on a fife:
He looked again, and found it was
A letter from his wife.
‘At length I realize,’ he said,
‘The bitterness of Life!'”

(Lewis Caroll in Sylvie and Bruno)
