Sad Songs Again

Doors that open…
The Space Race
ICBM and Cruise missile
4-minute warning
Fallout snow
nowhere to go

Ice and snow
At the North Pole
Icy tundra
Roads that disappear
into the white
the killing snow
warming your soul

Darling presents to come
your guests welcome
never seen you before
merci beaucoup, P’or flavor
Where you going on holiday
To Mexico or Bahrain
Be sure to take a hundred dollar bill

to tip the Russian waiters

At the wake, an old flame
resembles something left in the rain
a fire and whiskey glow
and soon talk turn to tomorrow
and yesterday and its gloom
seems like an old sorrow
put it to bed get warm
for sad songs again.
