someone milked the cow and someone drunk the brandy

on a crumbling highway
where beggars eat money
drunk and incapable
marked until death freedom creates
its own lines then disappears

writing without words
there is no need for a sign
in a vortex of formless chaos
the tyranny of objects is
untethered from reference

days that future passed out of time
close to the edge in a distant land
narcissus met beelzebub
continual adaptions of the same theme
closed eyes on a blank canvas

uncertain in its mystery
a voice thats strange in delivery
he shall be eaten by worms
said a god we cannot see
in a song that never ends

at the festival of baal
there was a gift from the gods
a crisis in the autumn eqiunox
the spirit of fire works its own oracle
existential structures formulate

loathsome in dust and decay
sunken deep in doubt and jealousy
a counter proposition to comedy
the philosophers stone was no remedy
its the last footsteps of tragedy

the ranters dance with the levellers
dreams adapted by fanatical puritans
who then decide to ban christmas
sometimes never in a musical game
a king puts a tax on windows

misfortune starts walking through
the tower and the hanged man
search in the universe of death
the rule of nature has now
been replaced by the machine

someone milked the cow and someone drunk the brandy
