pea permutations (A poem based on a line from Circus Time, by Euros Childs)


Don’t want to be the best, don’t want to be like the rest,

Don’t want to be the like the best, don’t want to be the rest,

The rest don’t want to be like the best, don’t want to be.

The rest like the best, don’t want to be, don’t want to be.

Like the best.   Rest.   Don’t want to be, don’t want to be.

Rest like the best.  Don’t want to be, don’t want to be.

Rest like the best.   Don’t want to want to be, don’t be.

Don’t rest like the best.  Don’t want to want to be.  Be.

Don’t rest.  Like the best. Don’t want to want to be.  Be.
