Applied rotation on her sugar plum"

Isn't there also a "London is drowning and I live by the river" part to that song? (which is pretty cool too)

Re: Best Imagery-To-Words Ratio?

Love these:

Now all the authorities
They just stand around and boast
How they blackmailed the sergeant-at-arms
Into leaving his post (Bob Dylan, Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues)

And the only sound that's left
After the ambulances go
Is Cinderella sweeping up
On Desolation Row (Bob Dylan, Desolation Row)
