Yodeling is Quantum Singing




Yodeler

O delay he who delays the yodler who
wants only to sing his mountainous vowels
tie him like a bell to a cow
send him up to the high meadow
where he can commune for oh
maybe a week
with the pretty
yellow flowers
and maybe as he's hanging there
under the cow
slurping and mooing
chewing its glacier-wet cud
he'll call out
'O he who would delay the yodler who
would delay he who would delay the yodler who
wants only to sing his mountainous vowels and who
would tie him to a cow
should beware and let him go without delay, i.e.
up the mountain'
