    Sad news With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week. Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

    that reminds me..of a song by some short balding guy....what's his name???


    The universe is runnin' away
    I heard it on the news just the other day
    There's this new stuff called dark energy
    We can't measure and we can't see
    It's some elemental mystery
    Train that we can't catch

    But our heads are in the oven
    And somebody's 'bout to strike a match

    Meanwhile back on our big round ball
    Things are getting serious as cholesterol
    Permutations, calculations,
    Greedy piggies at the trough
    Arrogance and ignorance
    Just to top it off
    I just can't keep up with the Nasdaq
    Who got sold and bought
    I've got to take my lunch break
    But I'll leave you with a little for thought

    Maybe it's all too simple
    For our brains to figure it out
    What if the hokey pokey
    Is all it really is about

    What if life is just a cosmic joke
    Like spiders in your underwear or olives in
    your coke
    My life can get as messy as a day old sticky bun
    So I arm myself with punch lines and a big ol'
    water gun
    They say it's not that simple but just maybe it
    should be
    It's time to change the subject, would you join me
    in a cup of herbal tea?

    Maybe it's all too simple
    For our brains to figure it out
    What if the hokey pokey
    Is all it really is about

    I still believe in rock 'n' roll
    It pays my bills and soothes my soul
    There really really isn't
    A whole lot more around
    Except for Frank Sinatra and the Big
    band sound
    I want music in the music
    I want chicken in the soup
    I want caffeine in my system let's revive
    the hula hoop

    Maybe it's all too simple
    For our brains to figure it out
    What if the hokey pokey
    Is all it really is about
