You may think you are comfy in this crampèd little space,
But tilt your head a little, and you’ll see a different place.
In fact there’s a photographer now picturing my face.
Look a little harder, dear, I think that you will find
That what you think of as above is actually behind;
And all the things you think you see are only in your mind.
I’m telling you that isn’t so, you brainless little twerp.
This is no madness trying my composure to usurp.
Just use your ears and listen, you will hear a birdie chirp!
Some things I have to tell you, Ma’am, some facts that you should know:
The Earth that you adore so much is many miles below,
And what you see above your head is just a picture show.
Okay, that’s it. I’ve had enough. It’s time for you to waken.
You have to face up to the truth, although your faith be shaken.
Unless, of course, you have some more of those pills you’ve just taken!
