Sillysong for Monday






Tell me truly, what makes the potter - 
the turning wheel or the final pot
and what if the kiln is cooler or hotter
and all that effort comes to nought?

 

What changes the ploughman to a farmer
the furrows neat, or the golden crop
and is a soldier victory or armour
or should I let this argument drop?

 

I feel the beat that moves the dancer
maybe it’s her grace makes the beat throb
think on it and give me an answer
are results key, or plugging the job?
