Do Something


Do Something – Harvey Dog (2022)

Casting Spells - drawing by Harvey Dog 2022

The weather’s been good
Mrs. Thibeault whispered
to the vibrating witch
casting spells on a prone body
lying on the operating table

“I’m still awake doctor!”
“That’s ok, I’m not”, the doctor replied,
I danced to a cloud &
looked down from above,
“Mrs. Thibeault put on some clothes!”
I looked away in the opposite direction
hung up the phone
& waved goodbye
bye Mrs. Thibeault bye bye

Are you still here?

It’s not that I want to linger
but I have nowhere to go
& – oh there’s a snake crawling up your leg,
so I removed the stranger from my eyes
& I rose from the operating table
& I took out the nails
& I took off my crown of thorns,
& the doctor asked me
where I was going
where I had been
I said I don’t have the answer to either question
cause you know
I have to go

I Have No Dough - drawing by Harvey Dog 2022

I’m a little bit low
I have no dough
you know, I gotta
do something
(3X)

I gotta go (6X)
and do something
What what what what…?

You’re right Mrs. Thibeault,
we all gotta do something.

Notes

  • A piece about the need to “do something”..
  • Grammarly’s Tone Detector: Friendly (****) Informal (***) Confident (**). Friendly? That’s unusual for a Harvey Dog creation!
