Explosion du Dance



A hat or two makes you smile
While sirens dance all the while
A window restrains the rat outside
As spirits glance at you inside.
Her faithfulness hopes for another day
Before the beauty of youth fades away
For in her interest a seeming smile
Makes you crazy all the while.
She says is the meaning of a new day
So aliens grow and laugh and play
I tell her to weep forgetting my pain
For animals mean more than salt in the rain.
Yet as the enterprise of our embrace grows
A flower may bloom for who only knows
A tulip can birth for more than one day
Yet HE only knows the outcome of a play...
