Very Short Fuse

from Actually Not

willie saw some dynamite
didn't understand it quite
curiosity seldom pays
no one showed him how to use
or how to twist a very short fuse
it rained on willie for seven days
rained, how it rained for seven days
rained, how it rained…

willie found a warhead
it was underneath his bed
curiosity seldom pays
made a sound real loud
in the shape of a mushroom cloud
it rained on willie for seven days
rained, how it rained
in the shape of a mushroom cloud
rained, how it rained…

willie found a pit bull
who was on his way to school
curiosity seldom pays
well he asked for the pit bull's paw
but got the pit bull's foaming jaw
it rained on willie for seven days
rained, how it rained for seven days &
seven nights & afternoons
rained, how it rained…

williw saw some dynamite
didn't understand it quite
curiosity seldom pays
no one showed him how to use
a very short, it was a very short fuse
it rained on willie for seven days

a very short, a very short
it was a very short, very short fuse

  • based on the anonymous children's poem "Little Willie"
