“I could find a souvenir Just to prove the world was here…”
99 Red Balloons
99 Luftballons by Nena
Oh, from a Christian virtue channel that was engaging awhile,
An old time movie with sad goodbyes,
We surf about and watch our Governor
In an earlier, twice over incarnation,
Slowly lowered into molten metal
With a thumbs up hasta la vista.
Who’s to say who will compound (or confound) Armageddon
When we see a bogeyman in every bush?
And then there’s our Prince,
Who missed with 1999…
So many have trampled
And made Jericho tremble.
Star Men’s (and Women’s) sons (and daughters)
Astride their cats
Will sift the ruins for their memories.
