One Thing - Hayden Bergman

The one thing I think I know

About mythology is that Apollo

Pulls the sun across the sky.

With a job like that

His house must be amazing…

But it must be gloomy when he’s gone

Me, I’d like to take my pitchfork

And break in while he’s working,

Use my star to light it up again.

I’d rearrange the furniture

Give it that mortal feng shui

And get drunk on his head-splitting wine.

Also (If I know me) I’d jerk

Off cause from that view

You’d look damn good.
