How long is a piece of string?

How long is a piece of string?
How long is a piece of rope?
The hanging shed is swept and clean,
The corpse washed down with soap.

 How long is a piece of string?
How long is a piece of rope?
How big is God? How small are we?
No life where there’s no hope.

 How long is a piece of string?
How long is a piece of rope?
How ignorant is a clever man
When struck down by a stroke?

How long is a piece of string?
How long is a piece of rope?
The conclusion of a simple mind
Humanity is broke.
