Secret Clubs (1991)

We believe in the power of God
that brought us Mother Nature
and her three sons:
        Milton Berle
        Jesus Christ and
        Santa Claus.

We believe
in a little paranoia
to sparkle our imagination
and to fuel man's fire.

Our enemy is still ourselves,
ourselves and all the big people
in the secret handshake clubs.

Vancouver, July, 1991
