Telepathic Agriculture

If you hold a cabbage for more than a year
the cabbage will gain an animal life
If you hold a cabbage for more than three years
your hand will gain a vegetable life
If you hold my hand when you say farewell
we’ll be together for all of our lives

Telepathic agriculture
leaves are hair and grass is fur
Telepathic agriculture
roots are veins and stones mon coeur

If I want cabbage, I plant onions
If I want onions, I plant potatoes
If I want potatoes, I plant tomatoes
If I want tomatoes, I plant garlic
If I want garlic, I plant daisies
If I want daisies, I plant cabbage

If you plant a cabbage in one of your ears
you soon will hear a magical sound
If you plant cabbages in both of your ears
your brain will melt and turn into ground
