    i spent 3 weeks interpreting this with my friends

    as freedom is a breakfastfood
    by ee cummings

    as freedom is a breakfastfood
    or truth can live with right and wrong
    or molehills are from mountains made
    -long enough and just so long
    will being pay the rent of seem
    and genius please the talentgang
    and water most encourage flame

    as hatracks into peachtrees grow
    or hopes dance best on bald men's hair
    and every finger is a toe
    and any courage is a fear
    -long enough and just so long
    will the impure think all things pure
    and hornets wail by children stung

    or as the seeing are the blind
    and robins never welcome spring
    nor flatfolk prove their world is round
    nor dingsters die at break of dong
    and common's rare and millstones float
    -long enough and just so long
    tomorrow will not be too late

    worms are the words but joy's the voice
    down shall go which and up come who
    breasts will be breasts and thighs will be thighs
    deeds cannot dream what dreams can do
    -time is a tree (this life one leaf)
    but love is the sky and i am for you
    just so long and long enough
