Remember when thinking up a great name
For your notional band
Was a real philosophical strategy
For understanding the world and your place in it

I remember “The Band from Del Monte”
Thought up in a classroom
Not by me

If I were ever to be in a band again,
which I won’t be now,
I’d like it to be called
“Ruins of the 20th century”
If a certain Mr. Dillon said that was ok..
If it happened..
Which it won’t
