The Indifferent Samaritan

The discharged soldier counting the mad
Looking for love in a loveless land
Chasing flies landing
On his bleeding second hand
Charged down, ever ready
To forget everyone that he’s had

Picking him up on flat feet, sitting by the wrong side of the road of excess
I lead him to a palace safe where wisdom has it, things always turn out bad
The gatekeeper smiles openly, behind your back I see he’s glad
Shakespeare whispers to ya, whoever you and he are
While the Pirates of Penzanse fight for custody of your underpants

By the way
The east wind howls under
The bridge to Terebithia
Hard rain falling
Much ado about nothing
But love at first sight
Shadowlands run out of room
I don’t care who comes out of hiding
Protecting their side
At every impossible turn
From ungainly suffering
I’m forgeting all I’ve learned
Better get married soon
As I turn away from myself
At a glance

The Indifferent Samaritan
