(Three ways of staring at the sun)

Thank you Thank you Babydoctor
Babydoctor Thank you
And you count out the years you have been here in this foreign land
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
Fourteen years Here Jalal Jalal Babydoctor
And you count out the years you've been deprived of your hand
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
Thirteen years Stroke
Staggering walker it takes you two lights to cross the street
Traffic is backed-up here at the place where the cars and people meet
The very fast and the very slow
Beg for a ride and choke out a stream of words as I drive
A mantra of thanks and counting out years that buries me alive
In the light of your humble and proud handful of mispronounced words
And I fall to my knees in the shade of a tree and cry Thank you

I look into the sun until it blinds me
I look into the sun until I go blind
I am raped by the light of the light until I am the son of the sun
I am replaced

Hail and praise the all-seeing eye of Pelton & Crane
I open my mouth to the all-seeing eye of Pelton & Crane
Pelton & Crane I am replaced
Thank you

    General CommentPelton & Crane are manufacturers of Dental Products. The all seeing-eye is the Dental Light he is opening his mouth to.

    General CommentJalal is a name that seems somewhat common to people of Persian descent. Three million plus hits on google for Jalal alone. Which Jalal are we looking at here? Obstetricians as the Babydoctor? Geriatrics for the walker? Is it related to the dentistry equipment? Or something else?
