Romance Lost

Death stalks me like a sweetheart Rushes up and then just let’s me be All together my life comes apart And I keep watching but I can’t see Brush away the dead canaries And put a picture on the desk Another charm on the keys And a dead carnation on your vest Pound the swords into plowshares And the romance into bell curves Atop all the freshly painted prayers Only Satan’s corporate d’oeuvres Pull out the dreams and polish Cry a tear for all the windmills Look to progress instead of solace Hope is just another bitter pill
