In the Dark Alley Romance Died


In the dark alley, romance died
Whimpered softly as the knife was drawn
Rested her tired head on the pavement
Waiting patiently for death to deliver her
From this cruel world

In the dark alley, romance died
He sat facing the sky
The stars like shimmering fragments
Of everything that once was

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
