flood2
I tried to write about the sex jag
but the flood just got me down
I tried to write about the war game
but the flood just got me down.
I was about to begin to write “Freedom”
when the flood came around and
took me down the solid gold staircase
again.
There were lots of things I wanted to do
but the flood got in the way
I watched the wind shake people apart
I watched them break and fall apart
Beautiful people broke and fell apart
and then the flood just got me down.
and I went down and drowned again.
