A billion people died on the news tonight/But not so many cried at the terrible sight/ Well mama said/
It's just make believe/You can't believe everything you see/ So baby close your eyes to the lullabies/On the news tonight

my orange sky

The sky is blue
I realised
finally looking up for once
forgive me
since I've been trained
to stare at my shoes
while I waddle down
the pavement
for the purposes of detecting
irritating heretic
brown mud spots
that threaten to
deface the lovely white
I just painted on
but that was 10 years ago
and even the gahmen is saying
it's time to grow up
(let's get a casino)

lest I turn political
and be denied my retirement scheme
(they are really good
at storing grudges,
or so I've heard)
I need to show my
wholesome non-offending side

In my world
I paint the sky orange
and the earth red
the clouds are green
and humans are happy
I can sing aloud
in the midst of
schoolchildren sending
their parents to school
and cats drinking tea
in the clinics

my thoughts are disorganized
the dream is over
a new one is to come
but for now
it's me
and my orange sky
