O Superman. O judge. O Mom and Dad. Mom and Dad.
O Superman. O judge. O Mom and Dad. Mom and Dad.
Hi. I'm not home right now. But if you want to leave a
message, just start talking at the sound of the tone.
Hello? This is your Mother. Are you there? Are you
coming home?
Hello? Is anybody home? Well, you don't know me,
but I know you.
And I've got a message to give to you.
Here come the planes.
So you better get ready. Ready to go. You can come
as you are, but pay as you go. Pay as you go.

And I said: OK. Who is this really? And the voice said:
This is the hand, the hand that takes. This is the
hand, the hand that takes.
This is the hand, the hand that takes.
Here come the planes.
They're American planes. Made in America.
Smoking or non-smoking?
And the voice said: Neither snow nor rain nor gloom
of night shall stay these couriers from the swift
completion of their appointed rounds.

'Cause when love is gone, there's always justice.
And when justive is gone, there's always force.
And when force is gone, there's always Mom. Hi Mom!

So hold me, Mom, in your long arms. So hold me,
Mom, in your long arms.
In your automatic arms. Your electronic arms.
In your arms.
So hold me, Mom, in your long arms.
Your petrochemical arms. Your military arms.
In your electronic arms.

(Age undeterminable)
Sitting centre side by side stage right to left FLO, VI and RU. Very erect, facing front, hands clasped in laps.

VI : When did we three last meet?
RU : Let us not speak.
Exit VI right.

FLO : Ru.

RU : Yes.

FLO : What do you think of Vi?

RU : I see little change. [FLO moves to centre seat, whispers in
RU's ear. Appalled.] Oh! [They look at each other. FLO
puts her finger to her lips,] Does she not realize?

FLO : God grant not.
[Enter VI. FLO and RU turn back front, resume pose. VI
sits right.
Just sit together as we used to, in the playground at Miss
RU : On the log.
Exit FLO left.

VI : Yes.

RU: How do you find FLO?

VI : She seems much the same. [RU moves to centre seat,
whispers in VI's ear. Appalled.] Oh! [They look at each
other. RU puts her finger to her lips.] Has she not been

RU : God forbid.
[Enter FLO. RU and VI turn back front, resume pose. FLO
sits left.]
Holding hands . . . that way.

FLO : Dreaming of . . . love.
Exit RU right.

VI : Flo.

FLO : Yes.

VI : How do you think Ru is looking?

FLO : One sees little in this light. [VI moves centre seat,
whispers in FLO's ear. Appalled.] Oh! [They look at
each other. VI puts her finger to her lips.] Does she not

VI : Please God not.
[Enter RU. VI and FLO turn back front, resume pose. RU
sits right.
May we not speak of the old days? [Silence.] Of what
came after? [Silence.] Shall we hold hands in the old

[After a moment they join hands as follows : VI's right
hand with RU's right hand. VI's left hand with FLO's left
hand, FLO's right hand with RU's left hand, VI's arms
being above RU's left arm and FLO's right arm. The three
pairs of clasped hands rest on the three laps.

FLO: I can feel the rings.


Soft, from above only and concentrated on playing area.
Rest of stage as dark as possible.

Full-length coats, buttoned high, dull violet (RU), dull red (Vi),
dull yellow (Flo). Drab nondescript hats with enough brim to
shade faces. Apart from colour differentiation three figures as
alike as possible. Light shoes with rubber soles. Hands made up
to be as visible as possible. No rings apparent.

Narrow benchlike seat, without back, just long enough to
accommodate three figures almost touching. As little visible as
possible. It should not be clear what they are sitting on.

The figures are not seen to go off stage. They should disappear a
few steps from lit area. If dark not sufficient to allow this,
recourse should be had to screens or drapes as little visible
as possible. Exits and entrances slow, without sound of feet.

Three very different sounds.

As low as compatible with audibility. Colourless except for
three 'ohs' and two lines following.
