Trickling Thoughts Spilled Forth from Sorrow

Lies, all the little white lies
You told
They fell like snow

Hit the nail on the head
Once more
Hammer blow

Open the cage, release
The sparrow
Exchange for crow

Have a lark out in the park
Spirit of Thoreau

Backstage ears are twitching
Audience antennae
Pick up yearnings for the show

Plant a thought, ideas take root
Sit back
And watch it grow

Erotic eyes take plunder
Not lent
Nor theirs to borrow

Yes means yes
No no
Maybe tomorrow

Stagger stepping the floor
Real slow
Hello and welcome to the freak show, pack your bags–come on let’s go
