    Interpretation Interruption ( c ) Glen Mitton 2019

    Anyone at anytime can interpret anything anywhere
    Who is to say it's gospel ? , when they say , Beware !
    When Jean-François Champollion deciphered hieroglyphs in 1822
    It was at that moment in time , the " ultimate review "
    The discovery of the Rosetta stone in 1799
    Helped Jean-François to decipher and define
    Using it and other research he surmised at best
    Still all in all his interpretations were his educated guess
    A picture is worth a thousand words , " watch out for that one "
    When cynical critics are around , things start to come undone
    Sticks and stones may break my bones
    But if a hand gesture puts you into a coma
    If all you see is wickedness in those " ink spots "
    Maybe you should spend more time on the sofa
    Interpretation Interruption is just another weak link in the chain
    There's enough stress on it already and that includes my brain
    Now I hear some might be appalled by applause !
    Their ears aren't even sensitive ! , that makes you pause
    Though Fred and Ginger sang , " Let's call the whole thing off " once
    We can't , " so if you like potato and I like potahto", don't act like a dunce
    Tell you what , make all the gestures you want , wave your arms off for all I care
    Unless I don't see an open pit , then please make me aware
    Those who get to interpret and then dictate the meaning of " nouns "
    That's the sign real " supremists " are around
    " Are we solid ? , Okay , Give me five , Peace "
