"Eight Line Poem" as written by and David Bowie....
The tactful cactus by your window
Surveys the prairie of your room
The mobile spins to its collision
Clara puts her head between her paws
They've opened shops down the West side
Will all the cacti find a home
But the key to the city
Is in the sun that pins
The branches to the sky, oh, oh, oh

    General CommentThis song is so chill. It just describes this room from a cactus' point of view. Not sure what the last two lines mean, any ideas?
