Girl Scout of America

“Indubitable, Waskly!  Indubitable!”


Baby yourself with a smooth landing

Try it, you’ll like it, unto eternity

At a careful little fire in a measureless night

Where each thorn is a gentle quiet reply


The ground here is our planet’s cleanest

The universe provides no better place to sit

As it swirls your tallest tale above us

Old Rye’s reminder:  you are good company


In fact it turns out you’re the best

The only one beside yours truly

For hours we say nothing

This pleases the cacti choir no end
