To the Library
Text and Actions by C.K. Emanuel
To the Tune of “To Market, To Market”
Library, library; I’ll borrow a book,
BRING HANDS TOWARDS YOU AS IF GRABBING A BOOK
Home again, home again, give it a look.
PUT PALMS TOGETHER, THEM OPEN THEM LIKE A BOOK
Library, library; here’s the book back.
BRING HANDS AWAY FROM YOU AS IF HANDING BOOK TO SOMEONE
Home again, home again, with a new stack.
ONE HAND FLAT, PALM UP. ABOVE, SEVERAL INCHES IN THE AIR, OTHER HAND FLAT, PALM DOWN.
