2 A.M. Lullaby

Rating: 4.3

Why, lowing dove, do you crouch alone
feeding your chant to the ear of night
blending your complaint with diesal drone
freezing your tail in the imminent light
on some chilly wire, when you should be sleeping tight?

Do the sirens of the city keep you awake?
Are you sick? Does a fever wrack your sleep?
Is it that medicine you take?
or have you found no love to hold and keep

in the chute of Night, so still and dark and deep?

I can't believe someone gave this a 7. Point scales are worthless anyway with something of this quality. I would give it a 100 and paint it across the sky. Because I like it that much. And because it is a lullaby, something I am partial to, and also it's so original and different.
