An improvised song. A weird song.


The boy is a box,
His parameters defined.
A patient, a piece,
He waits for an opening.

The engine unlocks
Like a faltering drumbeat,
A latent increase,
A new hope to orchestrate.

His fractal organ flails
At 1000 rpm
The preset module fails,
He begins to open.

The boy is a box,
Just an insulated farm,
His patience released
Unrestrained he r a d i a t e s.

The dripping clock you'll never hear
Pulses through you crystal clear.

Pronounced Bah-Rabba-Jaggle.
