SPRING WAS YESTERDAY



Once again he's ignored 
the Steely admonition
not to go for that cotton candy
the kid will live 
not learn
as his ship of state burns
(Deep Purple's "Smoke On The Water"
 in the background)
heading straight for that looming
thing ahead 

His little Engine That Could 

having jumped the tracks 
way back in New Jersey
keeps plowing ahead 
through the shit fields of time 
out of 
sheer 
fukU
disdain

So let's go downtown

and find out where 
The Mikado is playing 
I need some color
in these grey days
rapidly fading to black 

Put on a grand show

cuz I need you 
to take me for that ride
to fool me again
and in the end
pretend again
that I'm surprised

    1. It's all in the weird little details, to me --- just enough understanding to help me connect, and just enough blur to make me want to know more.

  2. Sometimes its better to be fooled (knowingly) than to have your heart brutally broken..

    1. At a certain point, it's quite hard to be fooled, so you have to pretend. Smiles.
