Last Call - Poem by Buddy Bee Anthony

All my heroes are dead, dyin
in prison, or plastered on museum walls.
That's why
I've been startin brush fires on the Sun.
Pumpin salty water into the Sea.
Tossin boulders onto highest mountain tops.
Fishing a rapid flowing stream
With you gone, I've almost got nothin
Since you up and left me last fall.
If it weren't for my guns
this sleepin bag bed
I'd have nothin
flat nothin
at all

I once thought your love
it was nothin,
But, now I burn

for more of your nothin at all.
That's why I've been spittin lava into volcanoes.
Makin ice cube castles at the North Pole.
Mercy once, twice,
don't make cry out some more

Since, you've been gone

I got a boat load of nothin
having up and left me and all.
If it weren't for these guns,
my sleeping bag bed
this here grain alcohol
and one last curtain call
I'd have nothin
no nothin
flat nothin
at all.
