I thought it was Squirrel Sunday.Gum writing is all well and good, but writing with squirrels now...And unlike most, you could even write legalese with squirrels!
I Am on the pavementThinking About the Gummerment.
"People think your success is just a matter of having a pretty face. But it's easy to be chewed up and spat out. You've got to stay ahead of the game to be able to stay in it."Kate Moss
Wad ya say?
Putting the gum in obscene gestures and courtroom argument.
I'd Like to Think that Each Piece of Gum Was Chewed by an AKB48 Girl. It Seems Like Something They Would Do.
Naked Bob Dylan Robot Says:The Elasticity and Resilience of Gum Can Represent the Human Spirit, Flexible in Inflexible Times. In "Subterranean Homesick Blues" The Inflexibility of the World is Expressed Through Paranoia and Self-Confinement from such an Environment:Look out kidDon’t matter what you didWalk on your tiptoesDon’t try “No-Doz”Better stay away from thoseThat carry around a fire hoseKeep a clean noseWatch the plain clothesIn This World It Becomes Not a Matter of 'If' But, Rather, 'When':Look out kidYou’re gonna get hitThe Solution of Resilience Through Flexibilty is Expressed in the Following Lines:Don’t wanna be a bumYou better chew gumAs Such, Gum Can Be seen as a Form of Personal Protest Against an Overwhelming State.In the Song "Fourth Time Around" The Dynamic of Flexibility is Expressed on a Personal Level: It is a Woman, Not the Government, That is Inflexible:I stood there and hummedI tapped on her drum and asked her how comeAnd she buttoned her bootAnd straightened her suitThen she said, “Don’t get cute”The Narrator in the Song Uses the Symbolic Value of Gum in an Attempt to Achieve a Breakthrough Against this Wall:So I forced my hands in my pocketsAnd felt with my thumbsAnd gallantly handed herMy very last piece of gumHowever, His Offering of the Gum is Spiritually Rejected By Her Unwillingness to Share in Response:Her Jamaican rumAnd when she did come, I asked her for someShe said, “No, dear”To Further Underscore Her Rejection of His Elasticity She Blames Gum as an Impediment to Flexibility through Understanding:I said, “Your words aren’t clearYou’d better spit out your gum”Thus, Gum is Brought Back to a Personal Statement Independent of the World on a Personal and Governmental Level, and -- Indeed -- Independent of Success or Failure.Note that the Gum is Never Identified as 'Bubble Gum': the Reasoning Here Would Be Subject to Greater Scrutiny.
