Twenty Seconds


were told to wash our hands longer

about twenty seconds, the doctors say

did you know that thats almost as long

as it will take for Captain James T. Kirk

to inspire us with his opening monologue?


Space, the final frontier

these are the voyages of the starship Enterprise

its five year mission: to explore strange new worlds

to seek out new life and new civilizations

to boldly go where no man has gone before!


so each time I wash my hands these days

these strange and oft conflicted days

Im pretending to be Captain James T. Kirk

on my starship Enterprise exploring the new

boldly going where I have not gone before
