MacGregor MacBurger has something to sell,

and surely I’d buy it if I didn’t know him so well.

“There’s an INVISIBLE PLAYGROUND on the WORLD’S smallest HILL! 

says MacGregor MacBurger to Invisible Bill.

Invisible Bill says back loud and clear, 

“I KNOW WE WILL FIND IT!

For certain we’re near!”

[ MacGregor MacBurger ]           “LOOK! There it IS! Right up on that Hill!”

 

[ Invisible Bill ]                                                    “WHERE? I can’t see it?”

[ MacGregor MacBurger ]                            “Go up there, YOU WILL!”

 

But,

Before you go up,

 There’s one thing you must do...

...Give me ONE dollar! 

For you!?... Make it TWO.”

Give me two dollars,

a TICKET YOU’LL GET! 

YOU’RE WELCOME my friend,

You’ll have no regrets! 

Wave to little Willy, as he SLIDES down the SLIDE!

Say ‘Hi’ to Susie as she goes FLYING by! 

NOW CLIMB UP THAT HILL,

AND RIDE ON THAT RIDE!”

[ Invisible Bill ]                                                                 “TWO dollars

FOR WHAT!

I see nothing there!”

[ MacGregor MacBurger ]                           “There’s NOTHING to SEE!!

 There’s no need to stare...

...NOW GIVE ME TWO DOLLARS, 

This PRICE it is FAIR!!!

MacGregor MacBurger stands alone 

On the ground,

Amazed by the things that are not around

Invisible Bill...

...is no where to be found...

Illustration Note: Ends with 6 year old MacGregor MacBurger, kicking a pebble

and talking to himself, looking off at the flat, dirt field.
