1641 REQUIEM FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM

The chickens, they came home to roost

foxes roamed the yard

madrarua

spilling blood and hopes alike

so many hearts were  broken

The chickens, they came home to roost

gravediggers grabbed their spades

ace-of-spades-skelly-day-of-the-dead-skeleton-art

the knave of diamonds took  the throne

and counted Peter’s tokens

The chickens, they came home to roost

cavemen swung their clubs

til all the dreams were battered

and progress set aside

The chickens, they came home to roost

pursuing dreams of happiness

they followed suit and marched in step

and dreamed of being great

The chickens, they came home to roost

the revolution realised

biggestlooser

televised, bawderised, mesmerised

no softly treading here

Call foul and know that he

who builds his house of cards

to tower high above them all

but postures, soon to fall

Stay safe my friends

Namaste
