[Mr. Hankey]
Everything that lives on earth poos in some way
And that's how the cycle happens, each and every day
Just look at the green green grass and the birds up in the sky
It's all here because of poo, and now I'll tell you why
Cos it's eaten by cattle, which is eaten by women and men
It fuses with their bodies and becomes poo again
And that poo goes through the sewer
Where it's dumped into the sea
And it's eaten by the plankton, and becomes the fishes' meal
And then that bigger fish with the poo still inside
Swims up near the shore and gets eaten alive
By the grizzly bear that poos on a dead piece of sand
So it can spring to life and become food for the land
It's the poo of the antelope, the poo of the giraffe
It falls onto the earth and becomes the blades of grass
The grass is eaten by the cattle
Which comes out the other end
To make food for the humans and start all over again

[Mr. Hankey]
You see, son? You're not an insignificant part of life.
You are life.

But how can I be that giraffe
And blade of grass, and a human?
I don't control what they do

[Mr. Hankey]
Just like your heart beats without you thinking about it
So, too, your giraffes and your humans do what they do
Without you even thinkin' about it
But it is all one life form.
It is all… you.

I think I see now.


I'm the poo of the antelope, that flows down to the ground

[Mr. Hankey]
Becomes the grass of tomorrow
Which the grazers turn around

So I'm the leg of a leopard and the wings of a hen
Which becomes dinner for the human
And turns back to poo again
That's the Circle, the Circle of Poo!
