Sung to "The Earth's a Big Blue Marble"

Good oil looks like marbles.
When you Google it online.
Mineral rods and cubes.
don't make very good lube.

Our bearing planks roll on them
Oil that's round it makes no sound.
The mineral sticks and blocks.
make your engines sound like rocks.

They look pretty much alike.
They smell pretty much alike.
Synthetic is a price point.
The definitions change by brand.

Now they call synthetic
Stuff that's dug out of the ground
The sticks and blocks still there
just a little bit more round
You can't tell "synthetic" by base !!!

Do you need a beer? Cigarette? Joint?

You do realize this is the internet, right? You can walk away from the PC and the stupid people inside it.

The effort spent on your poetry could have been spent driving to the liquor store or going for a walk.
Life's little problems can be solved with a shovel and silence.

Things like this, I usually wake up with the first half already in my head...some association thing goes on overnight.

Closest store is 6 mins walk...was finished it before I could have got there.
