So, Small Beings…
want to improve the world?
Try cleaning your room.
Da-da doesn’t think it can be done.
The world is sacred.
It can't be improved.
Your room is a MESS.
It CAN be improved.
If you tamper with the world, you'll ruin it.
If you treat it like your room, you'll lose it.
If you try to clean it
Da-da will probably pass out from surprise.
There is a time for being behind;
a time for being in constant motion
a time for being in constant exhaustion
and a time for being in a dangerous frame of mind...
this is called, “Da-da Time.”
A Man Called Da-da sees things as they are,
without trying to control them.
Like he could, anyway.
He lets things go their own way
and resides at the center of the mess
in a very messy world.
