L'appel du Vide


The call of the void
The void of the call
Isn't anyone listening at all?
I think I'm trying
One step more
I counted to three and now I'm at four!
How much I wish
To be home again
But I have no where, no what, and no when.
So here I go
Just doing my thing
It will quickly be over and then I'll be king!
No? Still no one?
I understand
Not even a glance so much as a hand.
And so I walk home
Or said equivalent
And no one cares to even take hint.
What's that you say?
Somebody new?
I've given up with giving a who.
And so that's me
Being alive
Always been ready to jump at a dive.
But so long for now
So long for then
Guess I'll have to just try again.

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen

To fight for their country and Kaiser;
