The Shiny Deathtrap

by Anthony Watkins (Goodreads Author)

The shiny deathtrap
that is tomorrow
rattles by and wakes me from the gentle sleep
that is now

Go on glowing machine
of the coming day
take the future with you

I will sit here and listen to lullabies and nursery rhymes
and listen to nursery rhymes
jackandjill
littleboyblue how are you
go away tomorrow

and send me a wolf
to eat everything up
we shall soup together
lamb soup, with chops on the side

chop, chop
said the wolf
he took a bite out of me
but I am crime
and mcgruff sent him
I am sure
go away tomorrow

merrily, merrily, merrily
I lie here on the sweet mattress of now
with a wolf who can blue a slow sleepy saxophone
and I dream I am awake in old new orleans

if I had traveled more,
maybe I could dream of paris
but I am a poor boy from Alabama
and I cant seem to dream past the French quarter

if they had a French dime
I could dream that twice
with money left to tip the horn player
we chase it down the street, biting at its tires
go away tomorrow
