    What's a Bicycle Mr. Hennessy ?

    https://cottonswabcitrus.bandcamp.co...ts-a-bicycle-2


    Mr. Hennessy what's a bicycle, is it something I can ride?
    Is it Blue Tooth compatible? Can it Tweet, Share or Like?
    Does it need a stupid dongle? Can it even hold a charge?
    Said a little pug nose kid, with a tablet in his arms

    When I was just a boy, even more than I am now
    I'd ride myself to work, selling cigarettes downtown
    On a 1970's steel frame with Italian leather bars
    I'd laugh at all them fools in rusted Massachusetts cars

    She had 27 inch tires, the old European size
    Whenever I got a flat, the bike shop guys would roll their eyes
    Yeah but that bike got me freedom, and it got me my first job
    And that job got me a car, which in turn, got me a better job

    But Mr. Hennessy what's a bicycle, is it something I can ride?
    Is it Blue Tooth compatible? Can it Tweet, Share or Like?
    Does it need a stupid dongle? Can it even hold a charge?

    And Mr. Hennessy, what's a book? Is it something I can play?
    Does it plug into my Xbox? is it something I can play?
    Is it the robot that my mother bought that vacuums up our floors?
    Is it something I can play? Said a little girl staring into her phone

    I remember J.K. Rowling, pumping books out overseas
    We'd watch her crummy movies on big screens and on T.V.s
    And we never understood why our teachers got real sad
    When they saw all us kids reading British wizard trash

    Cause the good stuffs in the authors, who didn't have deadlines
    No - board of directors, no - all they had was time
    Flannery O'Connor never wavered, Dostoevsky never strayed
    From the funny sardonic truths we still encounter to this day

    But Mr. Hennessy, what's a book? Is it something I can play?
    Does it plug into my Xbox? is it something I can play?
    Is it the robot that my mother bought that vacuums up our floors?
    Is it something I can play? Said a little girl staring into her phone

    Well all the things I did, when I was just a kid
    Lighting Cincinnati fire kites in the landfill sandpit
    Making hairspray potato cannons out of stolen PVC
    Yeah, lighting shit on fire was the coolest thing to be

    So I must be getting older, cause I'm angry all the time
    I hate my stupid phone and social media alike
    And the only reason y'all came out was a stupid Facebook post
    instead of reading or riding bikes, we're all stuck staring into our phones

    But Mr. Hennessy what's a bicycle, Is it something I can ride?
    Is it Blue Tooth compatible? Can it Tweet, Share or Like?
    Does it need a stupid dongle? Can it even hold a charge?

    Ah. I see Mr Hennessy's problem. He's made the mistake of trying to converse with a child. Same as it ever was. The future looks bleak. *sigh*
