David David Abrogate It,
Turning Nurses into Wine,
Your Barbour Jacket, missing dimple;
"Criminality, Pure and Simple",
Drips from every trenchant sigh,
It's like your Tense and Empty boys
Were Thatched by such design.
You've been getting away, away, away with it all these years,
Putting backs in the corner, making the most of all our fears,
You've been getting away, away, away with it night and day,
Hushing backs in the corner, making the most of things to say.
You've been away, away, away, away, away.
Every morning, each a teacher
Meets a certain type of fate,
The cut of cloth like slow elastic
Bends until it breaks,
This early set resentment
Can and will not settle down,
The words that drip from token lips
Just amplify the sound.
Don't demonstrate with disregard,
Don't live your life with dreams
Of torment in your sullied heart.
Don't give a kiss, don't settle down,
If all you need, is to break a vow.
You've been getting away, away, away with it all these years
