A. F. I.

A. F. I. - Don't Make Me Ill

Cherry picking through the stars

And falling cannonballs

Waiting for the break of dawn

To start its morning crawl

Polluted rays of filtered light

Tropical and warm

Making shadows through

The snow white resin covered skulls

Happy birthday to the war

Standing by the wall

A rainbow made of stars

Under seven difference shades of grey

Spreading out across the arc

Days of wonder spent

Out there killing time

Now this may not leave a mark on me

But I sure as hell was there

Caravanning on the moonlit

Locust covered trail

We came out like a stream of bats

Exploding from the well

Slipping through the whirlpools

Of trees and floating cars

Behind winter coated mule

Down record breaking falls

Into olblivions open jaws

Standing by the wall

A rainbow made of stars

Under seven difference shades of grey

Spreading out across the arc

Days of wonder spent

Out there killing time

Now this may not leave a mark on me

But I sure as hell was there

Happy birthday to the war

Days of wonder spent

By a rainbow made of stars

Under seven different shades of grey

Spreading out across the arc

Standing by the wall

Out there killing time

Now this may not leave a mark on me

But I sure as hell was there

Educated under God

To walk a neutral line

Give me neither poverty

Nor riches in my time

Take my body and my mind

My heart is far behind

With one dozen poems in my ears

Ricocheting wild
