Ballad of the delusional.

And I run my; hands
across the keys
of my piano please
Don’t give me;
Don’t give me love
Don’t give me greed
I don’t want to listen
you’re just a squeeze
But I keep on going
It’s not worthwhile
I’ll just; walk a mile
Insanity claimed me
As a Nile born child
Our black book;
I  just want to burn it,
I cannot concern it
while you are not around

But you said “Ah,
I heard a sound”
and I replied “No
it was your mind”
Rather I just agree
To your decree of
Justice I must miss

My minds a maze
of battling nations
A mix joy of relation
But you rather add ship
And I rather abandon
All the love
tell me what happened
No, I rather not
Don’t look at me

I’m just a flame
caught in wind
can’t you see?
Monday or Tuesday
Wednesday to Friday
I’m always here but I
don’t get it my way
So you uh,
leave me alone
with my
Bottle of ‘trone
And I just
Got to admit it was
more pleasant
to live life as a peasant
than a prisoner of love
in the present

~S. Rich
