Ten thousand years of Roboshrub.

Fangs for the memories.

In today’s state, Roboshrub Incorporated is an entity entirely devoted
to the execution of what normal people would refer to as “bad ideas.”

It was the creator’s original idea that all concepts, whether
useful or not, contribute to the global subconscious level of progress
for the human race. Therefore, we contend that no idea is an unfit
idea, and vow to act on each and every one of them.

Half-Time Steve

Half-Time Steve

Years and years ago they say
he worked for the carnival.
Lights and bears,
these were his prayers,
until he lost the way.

Some say he died, but he was never born.
Others say he paints the sky
for breakfast every morn.

Broken lamps, out on the lam,
and imaginary peoples
with imaginary printer jams.

Fired up under a half-tone monsoon,
fingers like clockwork on a hand-carved moon.
He’s knee-deep in candles,
up to his cut-off sleeves.
There laughin’ down below,
sat Half-Time Steve.

With a moth in his wallet
and a rusty old wrench,
he’s fightin’ off demons
for a crusty old bench;
At the hardware store,
where we all used to wave,
he’s sitting there, foo-fightin’
so we’ll all think he’s brave.

And we’ve seen him down there,
and he’s got a glass eye,
an’ a bucket full of paint.
Laughin’ at the sky.

It took me a minute to get the cadence.
Not your usual ballad.

I had to use the deep voice for that one.

Very cool, tho.

I'd be more amazed by a snake head eating the head on the opposite side.

I palindrome I.

I think I've seen that guy gargling barb-wire fences down by the docks.

No, wait....that's Moshpit Marvin.

Moshpit Marvin and Half-Time Steve are two of the most prolific rain dogs on the face of the dockside.

I like the way your artwerk is expanding. Reagan with an ice cream cone is too good!
