Straitjacket

Proper civil propensities

                Skirt the ankles of the royal Shetlands

                              Roll the Isles with boys blush

                                          Amidst frigid trials of the English strait

Propped on stage in the gathered home

                Fork, the knife, the mannered hand

                                Yorkshire puffs and studded roasts

                                               Neatly opposed on serving plates

Bones collectively ring “the future is ours”

Punch the clock with morning callous

               Rise to grind with sun, like flour

                                Tongue under hide, the herd hungers

                                                Take the break, out getting ribs

Down to brass tacks and taps

                To suck back the sours

                                Separate the men from the boys

                                                And then from their sons

Bones collectively ring “the future is ours”

 

Please help support my recording process and get this album spinning
