New York Psychedelic Harbor

Posted in Uncategorized by bowsprite on 2015/01/11


One anchorage is larger
And one anchorage is small
And the yellow buoys of Bay Ridge
Don’t do anything at all

And you just had some kind of tug food
And your mind is moving slow
Go ask the Statue
I think she’ll know

And the AK bridge lady is talking backwards
And VTS said to go ahead
Remember what the HarborMaster said

Clean your head
Clean your head

    for the record, this IS among my top five all time favorite songs: i love your adapted punchline . . . but your lyrics seem incomplete without ALICE. how could you leave ALICE out . . . how can we work this in?

    What happens if I use that for navigation?

      yes, it should say, “Bonnie, please do not use to navigate” because you would know, and would say: “well, that pink pier doesn’t belong here, it’s there…and that riprap line is off, it’s more due west…”

    if you use that for navigation, one outcome might be a very clean head. another might be your going round and round the upper bay forever . . . maybe bowsprite can incorporate this song into a post:

    sure you can use it for navigation… but it won’t be a linear path and you may not arrive where you expect… like, eVER 🙂 great post. where can I get one? pre-shrunk L pls…

    Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
    That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
    I don’t much care where…
    Then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.
    So long as I get somewhere.
    Oh, you’re sure to do that, if only you sail long enough.
