The creases in your shirt reminded me of the floor
because thats where you leave things
that only keep you warm...
The mice came quickly - Horray.
you were thrilled at the prospect of earning respect
until you realised that honour
didn't have much in it...
So the streets are still wearing away
the water still pushes the silt
the mice come and the mice stay
and your floor is where I momentarily lay...
The Mice arrived Hallelujah.
you always said that they would come
to eat the bindings of class and culture
where woman are ladies and the men are handsome
but the mice grow fat and restless
lying with me on your floor
like an army of animals on leave
with me as their captain- Hallelujah...
