Kadunk


Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

You can't stop getting older,
the lines on your face crack open!

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

I used to think of humans as old,
but they're nothing compared to
you time, it's the body and the
robber of the body, stealing something
very certain...

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

I think I'll just use it up now,
spurt it out, bruise it,
the urge to go into battle
with your own mind...

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

You'd almost think I know what
to say, what these politics are,
do you really want us to stretch
our feelings out, so that one day,
we might even reveal them,

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

That fear appears to be fearless,
Just like two big great shadows
falling to the ground,
smokescreen,

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

Fast-forward, they go out and
come in again,
rewind, walk backwards and go
in again,
pause - play - same thing happens!

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

But wasn't it just yesterday
when you thought - how come?
they just didn't see it coming,
nor did they recognise you?

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

How foolish of Mr Control,
his substance, is a machine gun,
and the compatriots are bleeding,
because someone went in there,
wired up like a bomb!

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

You can enter thru the Sun,
half a torso rippling with adoration,
a commingling of Earth and blood,
so where do you want to come?

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

Twilight Zone!

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

perspiration,

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

light up another cigarette,

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

Inhale/exhale!

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

'Have you ever had the feeling,
you've been here before? ',

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

I said - 'Have you ever had
the feeling you've been here
before? ',

Kadunk! Kadunk! Kadunk!

Start breathing...

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
