The Gods Aren’t Crazy – Leslie Fish

Drink, drink, to Charlie Fort’s memory –
Marvelous doings, and marvelous sights.
Drink, drink, we may as well join them.
The gods are not crazy; they’re higher than kites!

Charles Fort was a turn-of-the-(last)-century American writer with an interest in unexplained phenomena.  In honor of him, Leslie Fish wrote a song about some gods getting plastered.

It’s worth also crediting Kristoph Klover, who was in charge of recording sheep and roosters and making a pennywhistle sound drunk.
