mock orange buds

by omegapaf

" he played his harmonica till his lips were raw " - i smell winter - the housemartins.

some words are barbed......like the wire
some words just want me make me want to retire
listen to old music and smoke by the fire
limping along like a car with a flat tyre
let me hear you take it higher

i'm buying oranges while jessica is interviewing clint eastwood in my dreams
after falling asleep watching bloody awful 0 - 0 football teams

my roots are still buried deep in the ground
though my foliage is sometimes too high and windswept to be found

there are too many second rate hero's and not enough robin hoods
too many showy overblown cactus flowers and not enough buds

the long and winding road leads us where?
hopefully to someone who can care
i can define freedom and pretend it's true
but i really know that it's just shades of blue

where will we go today?
probably the same place we went yesterday.

" every woman, every man. join the caravan of love....everybody take a stand....join the caravan....of love....i'm your brother....don't you know? " - the housemartins.

There are many little bits that I want to talk about. I love the way you took a stab at this. The abrupt stops are a bit disconcerting. but I love this stab at surrealism and paul why don't you do it again? It is very cool to visit your feverish mind!
