LOVE AMONG THE RUINS

We lived and dreamed in ghetto shacks
Living with the stray cats
In Love in the eternal city
In Love with the filth and gritty

In the forum we slept
In the Coliseum we wept
A pair of star crossed lovers
Shivering under the daily news covers

The Moon can sometimes be blue
But so can you
Tonight has never looked so beautiful
The Gods may rue over our misspent
youth
Let us be our moment of truth
Like Mercutio and Paris before us
United through the entity of Orobus

No feuding houses of Montague and Capulet here
Just a hapless pair living in perpetual fear
The world’s a stage and we its acting fools
Stumbling over them man-made rules
This was once Shakespeare’s urban hangout
Where the cobbled streets are a sellout.

Lying in gutters and looking through the crimson bars
Staring helplessly at the moon and the stars
We can hear the pope sleeping
But he can’t hear our weeping
And his Vatican bank
Just another high class skank

Let one more fix
Do the trick
Take this to Paris and she’ll feel better
And I will soon join her in the nether

Now I look down at her
For the very last time
When for the first time, she will be fine
She looked so serene
Let this be our forever dream
And so it will seem.
