Ninety times a fish tail equals a spun yarn

Nine times a fish tail is spun from thin yarn? Swimming in tepid waters often relieves tensions but a moose with a migraine prefers an ice cold bath. Bathing rituals signify statuses and this is referred to 'Tatankinatta' in the elusive world. Exclusively it is the petite pancake that likes a nice clean plate to lie down upon. Until consumption. Consumption carnage creating collapsed chasms. And it is entertaining in a bowl of purée how a large seed of Dill can ski across the diameters and win first place. Entertaining. In a bad rock seek out a light bulb. Light bulbs can be found but only within the most ambidexterous caves and caverns whose arms can hold many a tree, rock, people, animals and of course ancient secret secretions. Whispered but not weaved. Weaved but not waved. And wavering is a clause only served by an insecure leaf who had jumped from the tree far too early. Oh dear! Not pleasant for that stem is it? The value is often valued by a huge mark but not a crease. Creases are only ever caused from the might of the paperweight. The pen is largely ignored for it is only ever making a mark. Often careless and signifying nothing. The outline of a printed primary infant is worth far more weight in truth kilogram than a print, a write, and a mass produced carbon fibre which glows and hypnotises. Weightless projection in a sea of alkaloid doctrines. The symbolic meaning of a single fibre can be assumed to be a dot in the wire of chaotic pronunciations. Flinging arms around the gatherings of French fries can hardly be silent any more and they gather in many numbers in many corners of global communications. And along come the noodles, and the salad dips, and meats. All to sing a nice aria that had been very well rehearsed. A 'la la la is a dah dah dah' and a 'dah dah dah' is a delivered fragrant fingernail which travels back and forth across the waves. Undisturbed. Unidentifiable. Uncorroded. Except for the thousands of mermaids, shells, mermen, jester fish, clown fish, and ten dolphins scribes. “Now please all be seated the story will begin soon. Now don't titter or tut like that. Tittering is reserved for tutu wearing bean bags whose jumping is disruptive. Very disruptive. Now show some respect please. Right. You over there. Yes you. Left angle. Stand up. NOW. Are you really that tethered? That chained? That you have become repetitive and therefore undefinable? You are representational of a chain link, moving around and around the sealed cavity. This is no way of life. Why be seated here when you merely dream of release? Tethering yourself indeed. Now sit down and at least look vaguely interested”. This whole speech designed to be of some warning also drew some nervous laughter and chuckling. The bean bag that the standing one had been wearing had been placed upon him in such a way as there was no use to attempt to get out of the adornment. Astonished looks from all at this. They put on tutus and bean bags on a daily basis. Often for hours. Laboriously and monotonously. Patterned and printed. Painted and palpable. Returning over and over in synchronised melancholic swoopings. But they took off the garments that they chose to wear. Perhaps the one singled out would now do the same. For to exist is to existentially display elements but not elementals. A fine play for the wider orchestrated theatre productions then? WOW Intercorrelated intercontinental inter-correctional buttons with jam marbles. With intersectionalism arriving from a hired hair cornet display. How great! A filter tip often finds it hard to decide what to take in it's suitcase when planning a long journey to a far flung destination. But far flung is neither far fetched and fetch is a game best understood by a dog anyway so never play catch under a viaduct with twenty three cats whilst wearing a round golf ball cap. Such is the aroma from the kitchen that the filter tip chose food to take instead of clothing. Far more useful anyway. Climbing onto the work top the tip found the bowls of curry and rice and the salad dish. Carefully tying then securing them with a piece of string he wound this around the cupboard doors to exact angles and then with precision lowered the produce without spilling a single drop. Now that is clever of me. Now all the other tips on the island will be very happy too with this offering. And with that the tip abseiled to the lino and packed the produce. The plane arrived with no delay nor cancellation then off into the air it was. Woo hoo. And all the while it is important to note how a glitter ball can giggle but glitter on a floor scampers around like a hyperactive child on a mission to collect and throw toys. Wasteful wobbling weebles wander woefully wanting walls. And a pink striped suit in a stupor is often more entertaining than a bus attempting a jive, a mountain waltzing, or a dot to dot penguin materialising from a page. Sing that song then. Go on. 89000 hits of the twits and the blue **** with the collars can warble the high notes so leave them parts alone. Zing. Z Brachiosaurus Z – at 58 parachuting worms dressed in nylon aprons to 15 boats in a ballroom doing the tango with the bouquets
