"Eight Line Poem" is a song written by David Bowie in 1971 for the album Hunky Dory. It is something of a second part to "Oh! You Pretty Things" since the two flow together without any separation. It is a laidback song with simple piano and country-tinged guitar. As the title suggests, Bowie sings only eight lines.
Tactful cactus by your window
Surveys the prairie of your room
Mobile spins to its collision
Clara puts her head between her paws
