Extraordinary Day

He’s flying on a spring!
What are we about?
About flying on a spring?

Dress now. Get dressed. Dress up.
Dress now. Get dressed. Dress up.
To be more than we can say — or shout

Accompanied by the Strike and of
and of ordinary play
of crossing
on foot
of meetings on the way
on this extraordinary day
this extraordinary day!

Whan the flor is at thy ruck
The rof is at thy nose
All this worlde’s blisse
Nis nought worth a pose
Nouthe more ne lasse
But from the hed to ton
There shal rotie oure fleisch
All to the bone.*

*from ‘Stryf of the Body and the Gost’ (13th century English lyric)
