The men of the island were gathering
they were collecting old trees and vines
for years and years, they had great plans
they were building something divine
they made the vines into huge ropes
as thick as an arm, and a stand as big
as a pyramid with two huge arms
they hooked their ropes to the arms
and employed the local animals
and they pulled and pulled
until they had those arms to the ground
they fastened the ropes to the side
of their island, then they all climbed
onto the arms and prayed to the wave gods
to set the ropes free, and away they all flew
into an endless sky of dreams....
