The Lyrics

In response to OMR’s “Atlas” yesterday, Mark Scotti commented: “I know you're writing about maps, but I keep thinking mythology (Atlas).” As a sufferer of low axial hassles, I thought “spine.”
Atlas, atop a column long
That’s ghostly white, like Dover—
Radicles’ billabong.

Oh, yeah, atlas.
Atop what holds up you.
This part is sitting right over
The vertebra C2.

Part of a team that will help keep you
Upbeat and not lying down prone
As is the case each night in sleep; you
Would be a chronic lazybones.

Oh yeah, when you smile, you smile—
Your lips just above that truss
That supports your cranium:
Top of the spine,
Atlas.
