Double-Barrelled Antiphon

1. Conjuration

how nice of God
to give us stars

and play hooky
in the depths of time

how nice of God
to give us stars

and lustrous lives
that do not rhyme

2. Conurbation

how nice of God
to give us cars

and salt our lives
with speed and wine

how nice of God
to give us cars

that always get us
to our end on time
