Today Is Yesterday
Just like today, is yesterday.
i still see the sun as it walked away,
the wind still slaps my face,
promise still under rug.
yesterday is today. action stillborn,
just like the other day.
our heads are heavy, our tounges light,
just like yesterday,
i know exactly what he is going to say,
'tomorrow will come'.
true, to some for years and others for generations,
that wait for that tomorrow
that will never come.
The Different Man
A man with a broken bottle in hand
Another with a bible by the stand
all with a conscience on their mind
to do good and evil in kind
One went to the butler
And the other to the alter
Prayers were said
And holy hands on his head laid.
But when he at last raised up his head
it was the man with the broken bottle instead
