The Poem below was written by an Israeli born Jewish man. From my
narratological base, I would say that it contains the meme we crave. I will
be away from my computer for a week, so I will get back to you then. But
for now, think about the memes in 'The Green Man'.
The Green Man
By: Yehonatan Gefen
Once upon a time, in a green town, there lived a man, a green man.
The green man lived in a green house, with a green door and green windows;
He had a green wife, and two green children,
And at night, he would sleep in his green bed,
And dream green, green dreams.
One day, the green man got up on a green morning,
Put on green shoes, wore a green shirt and green pants,
On his head he put a green hat and went out
The green man got into his green car,
And drove the green road, in a green speed.
On one side of the road the green man saw a green sea,
And on the other side lots of green flowers.
It was a beautiful day.
And the green man was happy and sang green songs,
He smoked a green cigarette, with green smoke.
And then the green man saw that on the side of the road
Stands a blue man.
The green man stopped his green car and asked the blue man;
"Hey, Blue Man, what are you doing here?"
"Me?" said the Blue Man,
"I'm from a different story."
