I liked this so much I wrote a song about you :


[rock style music]
Geox!!! He has interesting view!
Yeah, he has interesting views,
Boy, very interesting views!
HE – IS – INTE-RESTING!!!

Geox!!! He like to write about ducks,
But he isn’t himself a duck,
No, he isn’t like a duck,
He’s – A – REAL – MAN!!!

[slow ballad part]

I sometimes imagine how it would be like, to live in a world without Geox…
But such world could never exists…
And a world that doesn’t exist doesn’t have air…
So I couldn’t breath in such world…
So I’m dying in this this Geox-less world I just imagine,
Cose lack of breathing cose you to die,
Ohhh… why my imagination has to be this powerful?
Ohh… It hurts so much, I feel tears going down all over my cheeks…
Ohh… NOW I SEE SOME LIGHT!
Is it Geox?
No, it’s just the pearly gates!
Oh, well…. I’m guess I’m done for good…
DAMN YOU GEOX! MY BLIND DEVOTION TO YOU LEAD ME TO MY DOOM!!!
I will die cursing your name with every last part of my body…
Why did I write this shitty song? It dosen’t even rhyme, like some bullshit, pretentious…
HUH!
Oh, look! Luckily lack of air damage something in my brain that was responsible for me imagining all of this…
So now I can breath again and be alive…
What now?
I guess I will go back to blindly worship Geox, what the heck?

[ROCK MUSIC AGAIN]
Geox!!! He has interesting views,
Yeah, he has interesting views,
Boy, very interesting views!
HE – IS – INTE-RESTING!!!

"There is a category / It is another category" -- brilliant! The poet was clearly influenced by Wallace Stevens, yet has also managed to find a distinct poetical voice.

I wish this was written in a different format, because I have a tough time trying to understand what you want to tell your audience.
