O fim da Formiga
A Formiga de Langton explodiu.
Segui durante os últimos dias a aventura em que se tornou a pilotagem desta nave.
Cheguei a pensar algumas vezes que aquela contagem decrescente iria terminar com o fim do blog.
Mas não queria acreditar nisso.
A Formiga proporcionou-me momentos de leitura absolutamente fantásticos!
E, reparem, mesmo agora que explode, fá-lo de uma maneira verdadeiramente surpreendente.
Merece ser lido.
Se merece.

Do you remember a guy that's been
In such an early song
I've heard a rumour from Ground Control
Oh no, don't say it's true

They got a message from the Action Man
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too
I've loved all I've needed to love
Sordid details following"

The shrieking of nothing is killing
Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis and I
Ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair
But I'm hoping to kick but the planet it's glowing

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in heaven's high
Hitting an all-time low

Time and again I tell myself
I'll stay clean tonight
But the little green wheels are following me
Oh no, not again
I'm stuck with a valuable friend
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too"
One flash of light but no smoking pistol

I never done good things
I never done bad things
I never did anything out of the blue, woh-o-oh
Want an axe to break the ice
Wanna come down right now

My mother said to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom
