...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )

The Rise and Fall of All

In beginning land before fishman
we crawled on sand using fin for feet

only to find we were the menu plan
for faster stronger meaner meat

then dark matter died the dinosaur
comets cleaved the cloud

the big and bad became manure
as the quiet replaced the loud

though tooth and claw still the law
since eating the apple of truth

we now ride so high we’re heading for fall
unless we can salvage our youth

cuz round it goes from win to lose
for peoples, cities, lands

when we poor fools fail to chose
the right and grand in am
