(lights up)

1- I like wispy clouds. I like wispy clouds. The clouds, the wispy ones, those are the ones I like.

2- When life has got you down
Look at the wispy clouds around
in faces streams and bowls
in rocks in hills in moles.

1- That sure is a neat way to look at life. I'll remember that forever. (pause) I have a wispy cloud in a jar. (opens hands) I've let it go.

2- When life has got you cross
Use wispy clouds as dental floss
for your teeth your eyes your skin
your nose your mouth your chin.

1- Okay. That's pretty nice. (pause) Would you like to see how wispy clouds make me feel? (does wispy movements) Now that's honesty. Hard to find these days.

2- In a big old plain brown bag
Wispy clouds like to brag
about the colors of your feet
and the largeness of your seat.

1- Now that's not true. Wispy clouds think of rainbows and the celestial dust in the cosmos.

2- At the edgeness of your bed
Wispy clouds hit your head
put poopies in your shoes
and leave no wispy clues.

1- Hey! You've gone too far! Wispy clouds are hiding in the Looleeday Land in the nighttime!

2- Wispy clouds are right from Satan
and are always a-matin'
with dogs and frogs and weeds
with skulls and limburger seeds!

1- I do not believe it.

2- Wispy clouds eat rancid eyes
and like it when you dies.

1- (begins to cry) Not true!

2- Wispy clouds are not cool
they live in grandpa's drool!

1- (crying) No!!

2- Wispy clouds kill

1- NO!!! (dies)

2- (goes to #1. Shoves him. Goes away from #1)
I like puffy clouds.
