1971

The fact is he took some nice pictures of himself
And told a story anybody'd want to know. A dream
Of being a rockstar, a talkshow host, a surgeon --
Anybody knows these are plausible wishes up to a point

And at that point -- a ferry dock, a helipad,
A green room, the Senate -- you need the help
Of people who understand more about these worlds
And therefore enjoy being part of the system.

The shorter the sentences the wilder the dreams.
If it was unclear to him what alien was arriving
His passionate belief in our eventual abduction
Was the rhetorical equivalent of a shantytown,

Plywood, tin, signage, oh and the wiring --
He was going to stay dry and have power.
