So, take a tip from
Scratchy and kill all the cats you find,
then grab an Acme fork
lift truck and dump 'em from your mind,
you know that you're a
marvel, go and give them bloody hell,
a cartoon needs a punch
line, and some people do as well.
Your Warner Brothers
life is like a frame upon a frame,
and if you watch the
background you will see it's all the same,
as Scoobie Doo and Yogi
take the Flintstones for a ride,
you re-create the
Jetsons in a magic carpet ride?
So Garfield craves
lasagna? Never fiddle with the knobs,
don't see it so
obliquely - like a Calvin, or a Hobbes,
be Hagar, be a Viking,
and ignore reality,
go storm the cartoon
castle, don't give up so easily.
Create a giant sandwich,
say "good grief" and fly your kite,
ignore the rabbit, grab
the tweety bird and hold it tight,
the King of Id will have
your head should you forsake his name,
so grab your daily
download, and enjoy your strip of fame.
Your bag of tricks won't
help you if the Phantom comes to call,
you know that Mr.
Weatherbee is waiting in the hall,
so why be such a Jughead?
Be a Ritchie Rich, my friend,
go animate your life
upon the screen - before it ends.
