Honey Babe Lord

from by Strong Force



I’ve been pulling in and out of Morse,
Tryna calm my nerves, of course.
Every time I walk up to the station, I feel light.

Come on, eyes up, look me in the face.
Every time I try you push away.
Dirty roofs fly, rules already written, old in May.

In every tiny passing yard, the same old thing.
Palsied cats and limping dogs searching out meat
Or yawning in the sun just reeking.

I’ve been thrilling, nervy, and a chore,
Close your coat and umbrella before
Officers walk up and down the aisle, bored and wild.

Come on, tell me how your day became
Chewing gum, sore, somehow still awake?
Cinderblock apartment buildings shaking, dirty plates.

O But you know, I see the worst in everything.
In fullness I ignore the poor, secure, asleep,
You know I make my way in greed

You know I make my way in greed
You lean laughing, asking, “Would you like a peanut?”

Yes, I would, thank you ma’am.
