If the “Seven degrees of separation” theory is true:
That every human being on the planet
Is only six steps away as a
Friend of a friend of a friend
Of a friend of a friend of a friend,
How come only fourteen people
Turned up to my last gig?
By my calculation, that is over
seven billion dropped balls,
or un-pulled out fingers.
Incompetence or apathy on a massive,
Epic, worldwide scale.
Shampoo sales must have been
through the roof that day;
head and shoulders above
all previous records.
Or perhaps they all stayed in to watch
Simon Cowell’s latest programme
As their souls were swept to hell.
Just a thought!
