SNAILS

Snails
Groove on rain
And lettuce sandwiches ...
If God
Was a lettuce sandwich
Snails would groove on God
(Also)
But as He is not
Or has never been remarked on as being
A lettuce sandwich
Snails
Groove on rain instead
(And Dylan)
(Of course)

The three-ton slug
Grooves also on rain;
It, too,
Would groove on Dylan -
But there are such problems
Getting earphones to fit.
