Dave SmithWhite Poems
A Song Of Gilgamesh
Gods in the distance, gods from beyond. Gods of the chosen, the meek and the fond. The gods of our fathers that keep us in bonds; All gods are welcome in old Babylon!
Song: The Last Wave
I heard the wind a-blowin'. The wind, it raged for you. I gave you ample warnin'. I thought that you'd come through.
Song: The Girl On The Flying Trapeze
Who is that lady, high in the sky, Who soars as a lilting breeze? Is she an angel? I ask as I sigh, The girl on the Flying Trapeze!
Song: You Stood By Me!
When my world, came crashing down, As if hurled, from heights unbound, And loyal friends had all left town, You stood by me!
The Ballad Of Mr Sloth
He goes a little crazy in the morning. He goes a little odd by crack of dawn. A restless spirit, waking up and yawning, With a body-clock protesting, gaunt and worn.
Was it another universe? So many years ago. My life with you was interspersed, By affairs you did not know.
Song: Child's Play
Are accidents - reflections, Of the chaotic quantum world; Do the stars that rule the heavens, Raise cosmic flags, unfurled?
Song: Riding Shanks' Pony
I gave up my old car, When it gave up me. So I'm riding shanks' pony, To new misery.
Song: A Louse In Wonderland
There's a squawking, talking parrot on my shoulder. There's a monkey on my back, you cannot see. There are rabbits with bad habits, filing folders, In a mind, defined like a blind beaurocracy.
Song: When You Got No-One
When you got no-one, To go home to, And you dread the moving walls; An empty space, you cannot face,
Song: Rip Away The Veil!
Keep that gravy train a'rolling; Don't run it off the rail. Keep that greasy spin extolling, And the wind will fill our sail.
Song: The Doodle Poodle Google Boy
He was an ancient hipster from the USA. He had a dodgy smile and his hands might stray. He was the top man on his game; But when his secret got out it would snuff out his flame.
Song: The New Fascist State
Welcome to the New Fascist State! So unlike the old one – no debate. We are the new world order, Who respect no national border.
Song: The Shop Of Fools
I don't believe in the swindle no more. I won't fall for the scam. I'm sorely aggrieved by the indolent saw: 'I've money, therefore I am! '
Song: Night And Day
Any day and any night,
By astral planes or sattelite,
With psychic means, you fly my kite;
In ways I can't discern.
Any night or any day,
I'll see the light, if you let me stay.
Any night or any day,
Just as the planet turns.
