Back Next Timothy

The alarm was sounded
deep down
in the lower strata
for the uniqueness of Irwin
to enter battle
Clearly Irwin heard the insistent buzz
but the streets were commercial
and the universities filled
and criminals had their territories
and his friends were flying high
and the libraries were flooded
and the radio waves jammed
Did it mean
that Irwin had to paint
a picture for some future museum?
So Irwin called the lower strata
and asked:
"are you sure the buzz is for me?"
"Oh no!"
said the imagery,
"we made a mistake
it was for your brother
