Polka Dots and Apple Pie

Have you seen the sun up high, resting in its bright blue sky? Have you seen the sun? Oh! The sun!

Walking down a purple street, which friends do you think I’ll meet? Maybe I’ll get by today. Maybe I’ll just die today…

Listen to a lullaby? Little baby gonna cry?

Stationary Elephant, operate The Squirrel! Operate The Squirrel! Take me to the clouds!

There’s an apple tree amongst the stars and cherry blossom there, on Mars, floating through an orange sky. Apple tree, don’t run away on such a lovely polka dot day! Stay at home in my house of hay!

Here I sit, in an apple tree. No room for you, just for me! My sandals fall from my feet. This purple day is pretty neat. Apples and polka dots sit with the tiny tots, whilst clay pigeons fly on high through the watery green and yellow sky. Ding-dong-merry-doll – with an apple tree amongst the stars and cherry blossom on the cars! See polka dots and apple pies sitting on the bright green eye…

This time last year:
‘I got 2000AD 387

…It’s amazing! There’s a brand-new Nemesis the Warlock strip drawn by the amazing Kevin O’Neill. I’ve hardly read much Nemesis, but I love it. And I love O'Neill's art.’
