A Cancellation Of The Blues by Michael Marrotti


A Cancellation Of The Blues

Death is imminent
try if you will
to elude your fate
there’s no escape
I wanna watch
you die

I’m counting
the days
those final hours
without you
there wound be
no loss

White roses
would sprout
from the filth
of the city streets

would always
play in tune
for a society
living in harmony

Cures would be
readily available
to those
who gave back

People would smile
when the scum
of the earth
withered away
and died
a painful death

An eradication
of grief
A cancellation
of the blues

People die
day of the week
It’s a shame
not one of them

For without you
there’d be
left to lose
